This historic Italianate house was once owned by prominent merchant William Tanner and it is now home to the Aurora Historical Museum, which offers tours of the fully furnished home. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places house and features high ceilings, oak grained woodwork, ornate plaster decoration, and antique furnishings.
This museum is the former home of prominent Chicago businessman William Tanner. Curator Dennis Buck hopes to offer an interpretation of the home, as it existed in the 1870-90s, when the Tanner family resided here. Several rooms are available for viewing, and each is meant to portray a realistic picture of how the family lived. The decor is updated throughout the year to reflect the changing seasons. On occasion, the house is designed to show how the family might have prepared for a funeral or wedding. The gas light fixtures are retrofitted to run on electricity these days, but the architecture of the house is well preserved and evokes a by-gone era. The Aurora Historical Society also operates an archive here, displaying photos in every medium from glass plate negatives to tintypes. The museum also holds many archival records from the city, the courts and local businesses. Genealogical research is the primary day-to-day function of the museum.

The Batavia Riverwalk curves along the edge of a 12-acre (4.8-hectare) peninsula, flanked by the Fox River on both sides. Offering a breath of fresh air to the residents of Batavia, the plan of this riverwalk was an initiative taken by the City Government and the Batavia Parks Districts, and after about six years of labor volunteered by locals, the Riverwalk was complete. This park lies right next to the Batavia Depot Museum, and it still is home to remnants of windmills, a heritage of Batavia. Whether you are looking for a pleasant walk, for some fresh air, or an ideal spot for a family picnic, the Batavia Riverwalk is worth a visit.
