Long Description:
Built in 1831 on the brink of Western New York's commercial development, the Batavia Club originally housed the Bank of Genesee. In 1886 it was taken over by the Batavia Club, which was a private men's club. Today, the building is a beautiful art gallery which houses the Genesee and Orleans Counties Arts & Cultural Center. Six rooms of various size are available for rent for meetings.
