Batavia is a city, a town and a village and the three have expanded and contracted over the centuries to become their present size. Within those changes, communities of common groups have remained pretty much the same although allegiances have wavered over the years.
Batavia, the township, presently includes these communities:
Bushville... on route 5, west of the City of Batavia
Daws Corners... the intersection of Quaker Hill Road (route 98) and Town Line Road
part of East Pembroke... west of the town on route 5
Five Corners (Newkirk)... village northeast of the town
Putnam (Settlement)... obsolete location where a cemetery now exists
West Batavia... southwest of the town on route 33
