A distinguished group of Slovenians who had immigrated to Cleveland, Ohio and had a burning desire to create their own special meeting place, formed the Slovenian National Home Organization on August 17, 1914.
They knew that because of their numbers they needed a place that could accommodate all the educational, cultural and social needs of them and their families. They worked hard and sacrificed much to build the stately jewel that would become a Slovenian landmark for generations to come.
The year 2014 marked the 100th Anniversary of the organization of Slovenian National Home. This organization has contributed locally to the community in Northeast Ohio and has also reached across the USA and Europe, attracting Slovenes from around the world to hold their events in the magnificent hall that we call home.
Not only is the main hall the largest Slovenian Home in the USA, but also boasts of the Gaspari curtain – an unmatched piece of art reproduced from a 1924 painting by famed artist, Maksim Gaspari. The title of the curtain is Mother Slovenia which represents the focal point of our Slovenian culture. Prominent Slovenes are pictured in this famous painting including poet France Preseren and writer Ivan Cankar.
Thousands of Slovenes have had their celebrations in the Slovenian National Home complex – weddings, anniversaries, concerts, dances, socials, meetings and even Masses.
The Board of Directors, Friends Organization, and the 100th Anniversary Committee invite you to rekindle the spirit of those first immigrants. Share in the spirit of HEART – HOME – HERITAGE.
