National Preservation Week is April 22-28, 2018!

Batavia is home to many organizations that are dedicated to preserving and celebrating the unique qualities of our town, and we are working together to bring you an amazing week of preservation-minded events. During this week, you can learn more about your family heirlooms and how to preserve them, learn about Batavia with two choices in walking tours, and even add your story to Batavia’s collected history at the Depot Museum.
