On April 15, 1818, New York State adopted legislation creating the Towns of Aurora, Holland, and Wales, effective March 1 of the following year. In anticipation of the 200th anniversary next year, representatives from the three communities have been meeting to organize a bicentennial celebration that will begin in April 2018 and continue through March 2019.

Each of the three towns is planning celebrations of their own; and a joint committee, which includes the town supervisors, town historians and town council members from each town, have joined forces to plan collaborative events.
