 BOHEMIA'S FIRST HOUSES


                      


 

When the Kratochvil's, Vavra's and Koula's settled in the area in 1855, it fell to Joseph Koula, a cabinet maker, to build homes.The house on the right was on Smithtown Avenue. The picture is undated. The building eventually became part of Frank Huml's cigar factory until the 1930s. 

The small building in the center  was the home built for Jan and Barbara Vavra. This picture, undated, still has the outside water pump and  bucket. The house was also on Smithtown Avenue where it later belonged to Theodore Kruta, one of the town's butchers.

At the December 5 Christmas party, the Connetquot HS Brass Ensemble presented its 17th annual concert of Christmas music for the BHS. After the music, all enjoyed refreshments.
On December 7, Mikulas, (St. Nicholas) visited the children's party. He brought with him an angel to give out gifts to good children and the devil to give pieces of coal to those who had been bad. None got coal. There was also singing and other entertainment, some of it provided by the children themselves.
