Aurora, CO -- Looking for some fun the whole family will enjoy and even learn a few facts about Aurora in the process? Jump in your car and take a drive through history with Story Line.
 
The Aurora History Museum and the Historic Sites & Preservation Office are proud to announce the launch of Story Line, an audio tour resource for Aurora residents and visitors. To access the Story Line program, call 303-739-6681 and follow the instructions. Each historic site has a narrative that will tell the listener information about the location.
 
Story Line includes recorded stories told interestingly through personas related to the site and developed by museum staff. Listen to a child explain about their new Melvin School house, built in 1922, or  hear homesteader and Irishman John DeLaney tell about his family's life in Colorado. Those stories include narratives about some of Aurora's most special places, including the Aurora Fox Theater, the Centennial House, and the Smoky Hill Trail. There are also stories and sites from Aurora's 100 year partnership with the military.
 
Aurora's historic landmarks brochure can also serve as a guide to Story Line.  Pick up your copy at the Aurora History Museum or online by clicking on the Story Line link on the museum's website at www.auroramuseum.org.
