Welcome to Batavia NY !


The city of Batavia was named for the short-lived Batavian Republic (1795–1806) in honor of the Holland Land Company, which purchased the more than 3,250,000 original acres of Western New York in the late 1700s. The entire purchase was named Genesee County in 1802, with Batavia as the county seat.

 
Over the years, this consortium of Dutch bankers surveyed and sold off the land through the Holland Land Office until 1846, when the company was dissolved. So why not begin your Batavia journey at the Holland Land Office Museum, which today is a National Historic Landmark and hailed as the “The Birthplace of Western New York.”

 
Batavia is home to Batavia Downs Gaming & Hotel, a casino, hotel, resort, and half-mile horse racetrack with live harness racing from July to December. This 1940s-era facility is the oldest lighted harness racetrack in the United States and features 800+ gaming terminals and a range of restaurants that includes a sport bar, a buffet option, track-side dining and a fine dining restaurant.

 
This Greater Niagara city offers family fun and adventure at the Palm Island Indoor Water Park, conveniently located within the Quality Inn and Suites. With multiple slides, spraying fountains, games and a concession stand, it makes for a great family getaway. To add to your family adventure, take the short 20-minute drive to Darien Lake Amusement Park, featuring 45 attractions, a 10-acre water park and a variety of live shows and entertainment options.

 
Catch a game at Dwyer Stadium which hosts the Batavia Muckdogs baseball club, an affiliate of the Miami Marlins. Batavia also has the distinction of being the home tof the first union Soldier to enlist in the Civil War.
