Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Aurora, Colorado was first settled in the 1880s as a small town on the outskirts of Denver. Originally named Fletcher, the town was later renamed Aurora after the Roman goddess of the dawn. The city experienced rapid growth in the late 20th century, fueled by the expansion of nearby military bases and the development of new industries. During World War II, Aurora became a key hub for military operations, housing soldiers and serving as a training ground for pilots. In the following decades, the city continued to grow as a center for aerospace and technology companies. Today, Aurora is a thriving city with a diverse population and a strong economy. The city is known for its cultural attractions, including the Aurora History Museum and the Aurora Symphony Orchestra. With its convenient location near Denver and the Rocky Mountains, Aurora is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and urban explorers alike.
