25+ Years of Slovak Fun



 

At the turn of the century a large number of Slovaks left the Austro-Hungarian Empire and came to America looking for economic and political stability.


Many Slovak immigrants settled in St. Louis in the Soulard neighborhood - Boehmian Hill. In January 1905 St. Lucas Slovak Evangelical Lutheran Church was founded.


As the membership steadily moved out of the Soulard neighborhood a new church was built in South City at 7000 Morgan Ford Rd.
