Abstract: This paper deals with curvature homogeneous affine connections on $2$-dimensional manifolds. We give a sufficient condition for a projectively flat curvature homogeneous connection to be locally homogeneous and show how to construct curvature homogeneous connections that are not locally homogeneous.
