The "Nash" is known as the center for Slovenian culture in Cleveland’s Slavic Village.
Top Cleveland-Style polka bands have performed here for dances, parties, and weddings.
Immigrants from Slovenia settled in the city’s industrial Newburgh neighborhood and,
in 1919, opened a hall near their St. Lawrence Church. Over the years, lodges met
here and singing and drama groups performed on stage. There was even a marching band.
The building expanded in 1949 with bowling lanes and a large ballroom. The Slovenian
National Home has always been an entertainment destination. Events, like the New
Year Hangover Dance, still attract polka fans from across Northeast Ohio.
