Who We Are

Friends of LaSalle Street is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to the preservation and beautification of this historic area of downtown Aurora, Illinois. The block of LaSalle Street between Downer Place and Benton Street is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Cars were first sold and serviced in Aurora on LaSalle Street in 1907. LaSalle Street was fondly called "LaSalle Street Auto Row".

The goal of Friends of LaSalle Street Historic Auto Row is to restore the block to its original state and preserve its architecture with plans to add arches to designate this historic block.

Please join us on a virtual tour of the historic buildings of LaSalle Street.

Friends of LaSalle Street held its first annual auto show in October of 2009.
Thanks to our local shutterbugs, there are plenty of memories to share.
