"City Of Energy"

Beautiful Gardens

Located 35 miles west of downtown Chicago, Batavia provides convenient access to big-city attractions while preserving a small town atmosphere. Nearby Interstate 88 runs east and west providing easy access to Chicago and surrounding communities. Routes 38 and 64 are alternative routes. Founded in 1833, it is the oldest city in Kane County. Our original founding father, a trailblazer named Christopher Payne, had participated in the founding of nearby Naperville, and after leaving his mark on Batavia, did a similar thing at the place which was to become Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

What Makes Batavia Unique?

Batavia was a growing, vibrant and established community with an abundance of natural resources and a ready-made labor market.
