Czech Cultural Center
Nine people met in 1888 to discuss the possibility of acquiring a building to house a school where the Czech
language could be taught.  Eventually, after several meetings with a growing number of various Czech organizations,
a decision was made to build a large hall that would accommodate all of the social needs of the Czech community
that had settled in the Cleveland area.  The desire for such a hall was important to these immigrants who wanted to
establish a place of their own where their children and grandchildren could be brought up to cherish their heritage
as well as become good citizens of their newly adopted country.  To great fanfare by a Czech brass band, their
dream was realized when the cornerstone was laid in 1896.

Today as then, Bohemian National Hall opens its doors to the cultural history and traditions of the Czech and Slovak
people. Browse the pages listed below for programs reflecting this proud culture. . . .
