Aurora working to restore neon Fox sign to its former glory

The Fox in Aurora was first built in the 1940s, and efforts are underway to preserve its iconic neon sign.

AURORA, Colo. —

Driving down East Colfax Avenue, the neon sign at the Aurora Fox Arts Center is hard to miss. 

But, with a history that began in 1946, it’s seen some wear and tear -- and brighter, shinier days. 

Aurora’s Historic Sites and Preservation Office is working to fix that with a restoration project aimed at preserving that iconic neon sign for years to come. 

It’s courtesy A $73,000 grant from Colorado’s Historical Fund. 

Watch the video above for a look at the history of the sign and preservation efforts behind it.
