Plans For Slovenian Museum And Archives Are Under Way In Cleveland

February 26, 2007

Cleveland’s Slovenian Community plans to build a Slovenian Museum and Archives in the birthplace of Slovenian-American immigration.  Cleveland is home to the largest population of Slovenians in the world outside of Slovenia, some 80,000 people.    With strong support from the Consulate General of the Republic of Slovenia, Cleveland City Council, and Ray Marvar, Vice President and Senior Counsel of Cleveland Clinic Health System West, Cleveland’s Slovenian community will establish a sophisticated, multi-functional and interactive dwelling in which the Slovenian community’s rich ethnic history will be conserved and shared with the broader community.  The center will include a museum, archives and library that will share the compelling story of Slovenian migration and the growth of Cleveland’s thriving Slovenian community.  It will ensure the preservation of Slovenian ethnic identity in Cleveland and reach out to the broader community, providing an educational, cultural and literary source for students, families, archivists and researchers. 
The participation of the Cleveland Slovenian community is critical to the project’s success.  Be a part in preserving our past and creating a legacy for the future.   Start thinking about how you can help preserve our heritage for future generations.  Please contact The Consulate General of the Republic of Slovenia if you wish to contribute to this compelling project.  More information will be forthcoming.
