 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.

Happy

New Year

On December 7, the monthly meeting was replaced by the long tradition  of Christmas music by the Connetquot High School Brass Ensemble.
The program was enjoyed by an appreciative audience
On December 9, despite bad weather, Mikulas (St. Nicholas) paid his annual visit with an angel and a devil to reward the good children and give coal to those not so good. (There weren't any).  The children enjoyed stories, refreshments and their own entertainment.
