Spot a lighted grain silo on your drive through the Aurora Area? That's not a beacon to your favorite superhero (though you're welcome to regard it as such) — instead, it's actually the culmination of a Silo Restoration and Illumination Project conducted by the Village of North Aurora. Just in time to brighten our spirits for the holidays, North Aurora announced the lighting of the silo to begin on December 11th, 2020. Rising almost a hundred feet into the sky, the silo is a prominent feature of North Aurora's village center, making it a clear focal point for the community, from commuters along Route 31 to paddlers on the Fox River. “North Aurora has very few historical landmarks,” explained Mayor Dale Berman. “The Fox River and our parks are our most favorable assets and we want the citizens to enjoy them. The silo will be a beacon and bring recognition to the area and create a memorable vision for all.” Learn more about the illuminated grain silo with our story on the #EnjoyAurora blog.
