View of Aurora, Kane County, I.L., 1867 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This panoramic print of Aurora, Illinois was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Chicago Lith. Co. in 1867. Aurora was defined in the 1830's along the Fox River as an agricultural center for the region’s cereal grain and dairy products.

In the late 1840's the Aurora Branch Railroad was built to better connect the town with Chicago. The railroad later became part of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad and maintained important railroad repair shops and roundhouses at Aurora.

Clark Seminary relocated to Aurora in 1855. A major flood in 1857 destroyed all the river’s bridges at this point, swept away about 20 structures and caused much damage throughout the community.

The map from 1867 includes labeled streets, buildings and railroad route.
