Village Association of Batavia spruces up train trestle

Work on the railroad bridge spanning Main Street in Batavia is complete thanks to the Village Association of Batavia.

The group has been planning to repaint the bridge since 1994, two years after the organization formed.

The bridge was repainted in April and on Tuesday, July 6 signs were erected on each side. The historical signs remind travelers of the history of the village and the important role it has played in shaping the county as the county seat.
