During the late 1800's and the early 1900's the Croatian people
formed a solid community in Old Town where they established
locales for gathering, working, sharing stories, supporting each
other and preparing food. In March, 1900, the Slavonian
American Benefit Society was formed. It was incorporated April
10, 1901. Donated labor and talent of the members built the
magnificent edifice of its era- The Slavonian Hall.
In 2001, the lodge members commemorated 100 years and
commissioned a sculpture that honors the founders and the
lives of Croatian families. It stands in front of the hall today. The
hall achieved its place as a Historic site in 1976 and is listed on
the National Register of Historic Places as well as on the
Tacoma Register of Historic Places.

significant role in fishing and boat building in Tac()ma.
