Honorable Town Supervisor Glenn R. Nellis

Welcome to Eden!

During 2012, The Town of Eden celebrated its 200th Anniversary. What an exciting time it was!! The many events held brought community residents closer together as well as made us all aware of the rich history of our town dating back to 1812.

As we enter the year 2013, we hope to build on the success of 2012 and the vibrant history of this community. Farmers continue to prosper in Eden through hard work, always aware of new farming techniques and the variety of seed crops available to them.

Upcoming 2013 events include the Eden Corn Festival August 1, 2, 3, 4. The festival celebrates its 49th Anniversary this year. A remarkable feat for a rural community.

Other events scheduled this year are as follows:

If you are visiting our town this year, feel free to stop by one of our many restaurants. Oh yes, don't forget to visit the Kazoo Museum as the original American musical instrument called the Kazoo is still manufactured today in Eden. This small museum tells the 100+ years history of this instrument. Step back in time when you visit the Kazoo Factory and browse through the Kazoo Boutique Gift Shoppe as well. Often tours are given, especially when groups call ahead and in the summer, such a tour could be coupled with a nearby tour of the Historic Society Museum located in the Asa Warren House.

This house is reputed to have been part of the Underground Railroad helping slaves escape from the South during the 1800s. While geographically the Town of Eden is slightly over 40 square miles in size, just about the same as the City of Buffalo, it is a rural community (population 8,000) built upon agriculture that still prospers today with 5th and 6th generation farm families.

Eden is a friendly town. We welcome all visitors and we want to especially welcome those who take the time to review our website. We are proud of its content and believe you will find it informative.
