It would seem that all three cities also have a bit of claim to fame when it comes to Mary Todd Lincoln, widow of the 16th President of the United States -- she once spent some time in Batavia's Bellevue Place, a sanitarium and rest home for the mentally ill. But Batavia has other history to be proud of. Batavia was recognized as the leading windmill manufacturing city in the world and was home to the Campana Company (maker of cosmetic products). Riverbank Labs and Houghton Mifflin Publishing Co. are still located there.  And Batavia hosts world famous Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, at the city's southeastern edge, attracting nuclear physicists from throughout the world.
