Batavia Depot Museum Expansion Project Train
GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

The stories and history of the industries, companies, and people of our town are what bring us together. And through this expansion we will be able to share more of our town and ourselves with each other and our visitors.
But we can’t bring this project to life without your help.

Giving to the Batavia Historical Society and the Depot Museum can be done in many ways, from cash or check donations, to donating right here on our website. By choosing to make a donation to the museum expansion project, you help support the Batavia Historical Society’s mission of preserving the rich history of Batavia, Illinois, and the Batavia Township for the enrichment and benefit of generations to come.
