Lemko Hall

April 22nd, 2007

lemkohall.jpg1048 Literary St.  Lemko Hall was built in 1911 by Andrew Koreny and was originally a social hall with a saloon, gambling rooms and a spacious ballroom.  It remained the home of Andrew Koreny until purchased by the Lemko Association Branch No. 6.  The local branch was formed in 1929, and the larger group was organized in Cleveland in 1931 to serve the Rusyns from the “Lemko” region of the Carpathian Mountains.  The first Lemko Social & Civic Club in Cleveland was located at 1037 Starkweather Ave. in the mid-1930’s.  By 1937 the hall moved to 1205 Starkweather, until 1946 when it moved to W. 11th St.   In 1977 the hall gained fame when it was used to film the wedding feast in the film The Deer Hunter.  In 1988, Lemko Hall was declared a landmark.

    I just found your site and was happy to see it. My grandfather spent time living on West 14th and in the Lemko social club. I have many memories in this building. It is amazing, I was just doing a little research on the Lemko people because I found a box of my grandfather’s Lemko Almanacs that he had saved. I really didn’t know what they were. Thank you for your time and trouble.
