History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The town was created in 1818 from the (now defunct) Town of Willink. Willink once contained all the southern part of Erie County. By a close vote, citizens voted to change the name to "Aurora" in a display of their growing dissatisfaction with the Holland Land Company and its stockholders, which included Wilheim Willink.
