The Slavic Village Historical Society has vacated its former home in the historic Brilla House at Mill Creek Falls.

Through the cooperation of the Slavic Village Development Corporation,  we have secured office space in their building at 5620 Broadway Avenue, Suite 200.  All displays and historical materials have been moved there for storage until such time as a new home may be found.  Please contact us for an appointment.

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 buildings as a result of the recent economic downturn.  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 coming soon; this will necessitate peiodic loss of full functionality.

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