Drawing its population partially from new immigrants that came to the Chicago area, Aurora is known to have been incredibly progressive for its times, with some of the first women’s high schools in the region. Today, the city has a whopping 200,000 residents, with a historic downtown, the West Side, East Side, and Fox Valley sections of the city.
