Aurora City is located in Sevier County, 91 miles south of Provo. Originally settled in 1875, the community was referred to as "Willowbend" because of the pioneers who settled along a big bend on the banks of the Sevier River. The town was incorporated in 1914 and officially became a city in 1982. With a rural pace of life, a close knit community, and the quiet beauty of the surrounding landscape, Aurora has so much to offer!
