Allegany County, State of New York, at the junction of Routes 305 and 446 on Oil Creek, there is our Cuba, a Village with little less than 2 000 residents, part industrial town and part bedroom community for Olean, a city located 15 miles away to West.

None of the area is covered with water, except for several narrow streams which pass through the village, Cuba Lake is two miles to the north of the village and about 13 miles to the north , but still in Cuba, is Rushford Lake.
For Romans the word “Cuba” derives from the Latin verb cuba, which has the primary sense of “lying down”, and is usually taken to mean “to rest or sleep” or “to be in bed”; it is related to the word cubiculum, “bedroom” or “bed”.
We do not find the origin in the name of the Villa, but we find that the Island of Cuba located in the Caribbean Sea (1 308 miles away from NYC), was named by their aborigines (Taino indians) and means “large land, well planted”
