The population of Batavia was estimated at 26,318 in July 2012
The settlement of Batavia was delayed one year by the Black Hawk War, in which Abraham Lincoln was a citizen soldier, and Zachary Taylor and Jefferson Davis were Army officers. There are writings by Lincoln that refer to “Head of the Big Woods,” which was the original name of Batavia given by its first settler, Christopher Payne. The city was incorporated on July 27, 1872. Into the early 20th century, most of the windmill operated waterpumps in use throughout America’s farms were made at one of the three windmill manufacturing companies in Batavia. Many of the original limestone buildings that were part of these factories are still in use today as government and commercial offices and storefronts. The Aurora Elgin and Chicago Railway constructed a power plant in southern Batavia and added a branch to the city in 1902.
