History & History Related Items

The area was first settled in 1868 when Czech immigrants began to arrive. Most of the later settlers later came to this same area. The new settlers wanted a better life in America and began to work hard for their new community. Since they were a religious group, one of their first concerns was the establishment of a church here. The first church was completed in 1874 and made of chalk rock. With the growing population, the church was soon outgrown and a red brick church was built in 1898. St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church is still the only church in this small town. Life here centers around the parish activities and functions.
