The Wisconsin Slovak Historical Society was founded in 1980 by a small group concerned that the descendants of the Slovak immigrants were being assimilated so successfully that they risked losing all knowledge of their Slovak culture and traditions. Currently, we have over 500 members, some scattered throughout the United States but most concentrated in southeastern Wisconsin -- with most of the members residing in Milwaukee and its suburbs and in smaller cities such as Cudahy, Racine and Kenosha, south of Milwaukee. We are proud to be affiliated with the State Historical Society of Wisconsin.
