Located midway between Buffalo and Rochester, Batavia was an
important area hundreds of years before Columbus arrived in
America. Two long Indian trails converged here at what is known as
the Great Meeting Place: one leading from Lake Erie to the Hudson
River and the other from Lake Erie to the Susquehanna River. With
more than 200 stunning images, Batavia recounts the history of the
area from the early settlement at the Great Bend of the
Ton-ne-wan-ta to the vibrant city that Batavia is today. The book
tells the story of the Holland Land Company and its connection to
the American Revolution; the railroads and their importance to the
industrial growth of the city; and the urban renewal of the later
1900s, as well as the more current architectural restoration
