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.
