It was not until the Holland Purchase of 1793 that Western New York was officially enforced as the territory of New York State.

Land in the region was sold through the Holland Land Company's office in Batavia, starting in 1801. All of the land in Western New York was in the newly created Genesee County, and all of that was in the single town of Batavia.

Genesee County is located halfway between Buffalo and Rochester. Its county seat is Batavia.
