The city of Batavia is allegedly home to spirits. On the north side of the Tonawanda creek previously lied the old Pioneer Cemetery, which is now located in the center of Batavia due to flooding.

When the creek flooded apparently it would sometimes wash up a body or two and it is rumored that not all of the bodies were relocated. Businesses now stand on the grounds where the cemetery was previously situated and it is said that a woman in grey can be seen walking along the creek.
