Members of the Cayuga Nation who inhabited what is now the Village of Aurora named their settlement Deawendote, or "place of constant dawn," because the eastern ridge above the Village prolongs the dawn. The Village was first settled by Euro-Americans in the 1790s, some of them veterans of the American Revolution. In the beginning of the 19th century, due to the reliance on transportation by water, Aurora was a bustling port town. There was lively steamboat traffic on Cayuga Lake, the longest of the Finger Lakes, and later a railroad line ran through the village.
