Batavia: 3rd Happiest Town In Illinois

by The Rullo Team

Originally called the “Head of Big Woods”, Batavia was founded by farmers looking for good land.  Later settlers found employment helping these farms and other areas stay productive; mainly working in Windmill Factories.  Eventually the Batavia area came to be known as the Windmill capital of the world, having six windmill manufacturers at one time.

The area also provided great opportunities to quarry stone and timber, and due to it’s close proximity to the Fox, Batavia residents were able to utilize the water for power, which greatly increased their productivity.  This perfect combination led to the production of ice, lumber, flour, paper and stone, which were sold in the Chicago market. 

Though the days of Windmill Production are long gone, Batavia IL is still a fantastic place to live. Business week ranked it on the National list of the best 50 places to live in America for raising kids.  Just a couple years later, CNN Money’s Best Small Towns in the Nation ranked it #56 and even more recently, it was ranked in the Top 10.  Oh and it was also ranked the 3rd happiest town in Illinois by Credit Donkey.  It’s no wonder, so many people are moving here lately.  The perfect combination of city and small town, Batavia has something for everyone.

by The Rullo Team

BALL IN THE HOUSE BAND - January 18, 2014 - 7:30 pm

Following in the path of classic harmony groups like Boyz II Men and The Temptations, with a mix of the classic and the contemporary, the five-member vocal A Cappella band Ball in the House brilliantly blends a wide range of influences, from classic R&B to pop, hip-hop & gospel.  A review from the Boston Globe: "Ball in the House has everything you would expect to find in a successful pop/rock band....the one thing it doesn't have is instruments." To purchase tickets or for more information, visit the Batavia Fine Arts Center website.
