Czechs in the City: The Czech-American Experience in Cleveland

Taborville Cultural Landscape Survey | April 29, 2009

On March 15 half of out class went to Little Bohemia and half went to DTJ Taborville in Geauga County. I was a part of the group that went to Taborville. We met there at 10:00 am and walked around the community as a group discussing things that we observed. When we arrived back at the beginning we broke up into smaller groups and scattered about the park. In different areas we did our Cultural Landscape Surveys. On the way to our separate destinations, some students met community member and made contacts for future interviews.


I have connections in Taborville and was trying to arrange for us to get into the community house. I was also trying to arrange interviews with community members. Unfortunately, there were scheduling conflicts and we were not able to do either the interviews nor getting in to the community house. I will continue to try and meet with these people and arrange interviews and get into the community house.
