Basavilbaso is in central/eastern Entre Rios province, 340 km from Buenos Aires, 104 km from San Vincente, 84 km from Villa Clara, 65 km from Villaguay, 63 km from Ingeniero Sajaroff, 56 km from Carmel and 50 km from San Gregerio. Formerly called Lucienville, the town preserves three synagogues, two Jewish cemeteries, and an operating agricultural cooperative. The colony comprises 40,000 hectares of clay soil and cattle pasture. The railroad reached Baso, as it is called, on 30 June 1887 and divides the town into four sections. The first settlers were from Italy and joined the Russian Jews in 1892. The town was named from Baron Hirsch's late son and the impetus for his philanthropy. The first stage of settlement follows a Russian shtetl arrangement. At the second stage, about 1900, land to the north and south was purchased by JCA. By 1940, the town was 30% Jewish.
