"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... 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, Former Superintendent of Batavia Schools
