This historic district is important because of its ethnic heritage and European commercial development dating back to over 60 years. The Bohemian Commercial District falls on six blocks along the route of 3rd Street SE and 14th Avenue SE, passing through the neighborhood. Besides highlighting the settlement patterns of multiple generations of Bohemian-Americans, the area architecture represents a collection of commercial architectural styles and vernacular building forms of the 1880s to 1930s. Apart from narrow-front commercial buildings and corner blocks, the district has important structures like the railroad corridor factory building, fire station, movie-theater, two banks, several filling stations and two important fraternal halls. Bohemian Commercial Historic District is a cited historic district in Downtown and Industrial Corridors in Cedar Rapids.
