The Slavic Village Historical Society has relocated to a permanent home in the former convent of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 6804 Lansing Avenue, Cleveland 44105.

Through the cooperation of Pastor Rev. Ralph Hudak, we now occupy rented space which includes a library, an office, and ample climate-controlled document storage.  All displays and historical materials were moved there last spring.  Please contact us for an appointment at 216-271-0691.

Certified by the State of Ohio as a public non-profit organization on July 12, 1995, we will continue to serve Cleveland's Slavic Village and Broadway-East 55th neighborhoods.

Our mission is "to instill and increase the historical knowledge of the area known as Slavic Village and its adjacent communities."  To carry out this mission, the SVHS has conducted neighborhood tours and given presentations to area organizations. A major goal is to preserve the history of Newburgh Township with an emphasis on those areas of Cleveland which once comprised its old 14th and 18th wards.

The Slavic Village neighborhood continues to lose historic places.  As an organization devoted to preserving history, we document as much of this historic loss as possible. Please contact us if you wish to share any of your personal memories.

Updates to this website are in progress.

Cleveland's Slavic Village, published in 2009, is available in bookstores and online through Amazon.com.
