Illinois’ Stolp Island Has More Than 40 Historic Buildings Of Architectural Significance

Situated on both sides of the Fox River, the city of Aurora is the second largest in the state of Illinois behind Chicago. At the point where the river drops steeply is where Aurora’s Stolp Island, an island of just 0.03 square miles, is found. Construction on the tiny island started in the mid-1800s and today, 41 of its buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
