Bring your families and join your friends at the historic Willow Bend Inn, the oldest building in the Town of Batavia, the original stagecoach stop between Buffalo and Rochester, for an afternoon of music, food, door prizes, silent auction, and lots of fun! All to benefit the Holland Land Office Museum.

Cost is $5 per adult, children are free! A variety of food and snacks (with a full bar!) will be available, including hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, mac salad, French onion soup, chicken wings, French fries, and chicken fingers.

Music by Rebel's Posse at 1:30 pm.

Meet the people waiting for the stagecoach--they will give you the history of the building and tell you what it's like to travel by stagecoach in the 1800's.

Everyone is Welcome! We hope to see you there!

"The old Land Office is a common reminder of all the grandfathers and great grandfathers of Western New York. Their frequent pilgrimages to the Land office was a feature of their lives, They viewed again and again it's sturdy walls; they stepped in and out again overs it's threshold that they found in the center of all of their interests, the topic of much of their discourse. It was to them a social, religious and political headquarters, while they felled the trees and let the sunlight down through the woods to invite production in the fertile soil." --John Kennedy, 19th century scholar
