Being a temporary resident in Aurora, CO corporate housing need not relegate you to feeling like a complete outsider. Acquaint yourself with Aurora’s history by reading our brief historical summary provided below.
The town began its history as a suburb of Denver when land speculators and developers in the late 18th century developed a small parcel of land just outside Denver. Originally named Fletcher, after Donald Fletcher who developed the area, the city faced its first economic downturn in the wake of the silver market crash in 1893. Donald Fletcher disappeared, being unable to face the city's water debt to Denver. He left the city's residents to deal with the repercussions. Soon after, in 1907, residents voted to change the name to Aurora. The name originally belonged to one of the subdivisions in Fletcher that was closest to Denver and growing rapidly from its proximity. By 1970, that growth had caught up with the rest of the subdivisions and Aurora become one of the fastest growing cities in the country. That trend has continued into the 21st century.
