Built in 1857, this Italianate-style house was the home to prominent merchant, William Tanner and his family. The family owned the home until 1936, when it was donated to the Aurora Historical Society. In 1976, the house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house features high ceilings, oak grained woodwork, ornate plaster decoration, and antique furnishings. Visit us and take a step back into the Victorian era.
