The Aurora Historical Society was founded in 1963 and dedicates itself to the preservation of Aurora’s heritage. A non-profit governed by a volunteer Board, the Society owns and operates Hillary House National Historic Site.
As a National Historic Site, Hillary House is comfortably nestled on two park-like acres, in the heart of Aurora. This Manor was built in the Gothic Revival Style in 1862 and was purchased by the Aurora Historical Society in 1981. Hillary House was recognized as a National Historic Site in 1973 and is the proud home of the Koffler Museum of Medicine. The site is also unique in regard to its past function as a doctor’s home and practice, from which Aurora’s first health care professionals treated local residents for about 100 years.
