Since the founding of it's first business in 1804 by Richard Machell, Aurora's downtown and the crossroads of Yonge and Wellington have been at the centre of life in Aurora. Records from 1885 describe Aurora as an "enterprising and stirring business community" with several factories and mills, five churches, a school house with 210 students, and two weekly newspapers. Today, the new Aurora BIA aims to honour and preserve the legacy of this historic downtown by supporting and promoting the businesses which still reside along this iconic stretch of Ontario's longest street.
