History & History Related Items

Buda history:

The land on which the village of Buda is currently situated was originally part of a farm owned by John Mason who sold it to James Zink in 1845. It was in the year of 1854 that the railroad was to be built through this area and Mr. Zink laid out his land into town lots. The original town lay almost wholly to the north of Main Street and was bounded on the west by Pine Street, now Route 40. Another plot of something like nine blocks on the south side of Main Street, extended irregularly to the Railroad Depot. Many additions were added later. The town is located in S.W. quarter Section 34 in Concord Township, Bureau County. At about the same time Jesse Emerson laid out the town lots and the east side of the railroad.
More than ten years after Buda was laid out there grew a desire on the part of some of its citizens to become an incorporated town. That this desire was not entirely unanimous was evidenced by the election held Thursday, January 28, 1869 when a vote of 47 was registered for incorporation and 41 votes against. However the majority carried and Buda became an incorporated town under a general State Law Chapter 25 of the revised Statures of 1845.(Taken from BUDA "Our Home Town" 1828-1975 by Myrtle Foster Arnold.)
The founding of Buda: 1854
The incorporation date of Buda: January 28, 1869
