Aurora History Museum presentation: ‘Irrigating Aurora – The Importance of Water to Settling the West’ June 15


Here’s the release from the City of Aurora:

Water played a significant role in the settling of Colorado. Farming and water go hand in hand and have been important to each other throughout Colorado’s history. The Aurora History Museum wants to show you just how water has shaped the state where we live.

Come to DeLaney Farm, 170 S. Chambers, on Saturday, June 15, starting at 10 a.m., and enjoy a walking tour around this historic site. Learn about how Aurora’s food supply has used water in the past and how it will continue to use water in the future.

The tour is free and open to the public, for ages 8 and up. Bring drinking water, a hat, light jacket, sunscreen, sturdy walking shoes and your curiosity.

For more information, call Jim Bertolini, Historic Preservation Coordinator at 303-739-6661.
