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. . . .
