North Aurora was founded in 1834. Early on, North Aurora was known as “Schneider’s Mill” or “Schneider’s Crossing” after John Peter Schneider, a German immigrant who established a mill and dam on the Fox River. Incorporated in 1905, North Aurora derives its name from neighboring Aurora, IL, Illinois’ second-largest city.
With a population of over 18,000 and its proximity to the Fox River, three state highways, and the Reagan Memorial tollway, it’s no surprise it’s known as the “Crossroads on the Fox”.
North Aurora is a quiet and charming community that boasts over 300 businesses, with a balanced mix of manufacturing, distribution, and retail outlets.
