Welcome to Byron, NY


Byron is one of five towns in the northern tier of Genesee County, just west of the town of Bergen in the northeast quadrant and northeast of the city of Batavia. This is a small, quiet town where you enjoy country living with the benefits of being close to a city. Byron, which was named after Lord Byron, shares a school district with Bergen and the two towns are often associated together. Byron has traditionally been a rural area of dairy and vegetable farms. That’s still true today, although the town does have a few small businesses, such as a hardware store, an auto-repair shop, a pizzeria and a veterinary clinic. The town includes the hamlets of Byron and Pumpkin Hill, which also is called North Byron.


Byron has a convenience store, a pizza shop and a hardware store among its small business corridor. A quick 10-mile drive gets you to Batavia, where you’ll find a wide variety of retail, including Walmart, Target, Kmart and Sears, as well as a variety of family restaurants, fast-food joints and finer dining options. For grocery shopping, Batavia has a Top’s Friendly Markets, a Sav-a-Lot store and an Aldi’s..
