Buxton was a restless businessman

Workers are shown at the W.M. Buxton Baggage, Freight & General Moving Company in 1908. Buxton was involved in many Batavia business ventures but has faded into obscurity.

Throughout Batavia’s history, there have been many successful businesses, both large and small, that have filled needs and wants within the community and farther abroad.

Some of those names we know very well and are carried on in memory and material to this day. But many have slipped beyond our reach in some way and are soon lost, or only faintly remembered.
