Batavia Downs is giving away letters from their historic neon sign. Two letters from the old sign were already donated to the Holland Land Office Museum.
Director of Marketing at Batavia Downs Ryan Hasenauer said there are six, 7-foot tall letters left and there is a waiting list started for those interested in obtaining one.
“The preservation societies of Western New York or anyone affiliated with any sort of society like that is going to be given precedence over a private citizen as far as getting a piece of the sign, because obviously we want it displayed and taken care of and the history of Batavia Downs lives on wherever this sign may be,” said Hasenauer.
Hasenauer said however, anyone one interested is encouraged to get on the waiting list by calling Tom Balk at 343-3750 ext: 312.
