December at the Aurora Historical Society

The next installment of “Aurora Stories” is ready. Go deeper into the early fur trade and a visit from one of the first circuses in the country; meet the church stuck in the middle of the road, the sequoia that wasn’t, the Kicking Tree, the place for some clandestine cake, and the Steam Mill.

Once again there’s a stellar lineup of artisans in December. Starting early, on Saturday, Nov. 30th, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, Dan and Lorraine Tracy will be on hand with Dan’s beautiful woodworking and the chance to learn some traditional spinning techniques.

At Christmas in Aurora, Saturday, Dec. 7th, 11-4:45, it’s a full house with special guests including Nancy Shaw and Heritage Harvesters grains, John Wedler’s hats & jewelry, and fiber farmer/artisans Margaret Flowers (Trinity Farm) and Heather Warren (Lochan Mor Farm).

On Saturday, Dec. 14th, 11:00-1:00, Heather Warren takes the spotlight. More to come as the month goes on, too!

The “Tiny Christmas Market” will be well stocked with unique Aurora gifts, including “The Winter Race on Lake Cayuga,” a rediscovered Aurora story designed and printed by Rob LoMascolo. One reader wrote, “What a wonderful story! I felt drawn into the past and could visualize Aurora as it must have been years ago.” Find out for yourself!

The Aurora Historical Society is at 371 Main St, on the rear courtyard of “The Schoolhouse.” Hours are Tuesday, 4:30 to 6:00 pm, Saturday 11:00 am to 1:00 pm; accessible to all and always free.
