This marks the site of the first Sikh Gurdwara in the state of
Ohio. Sikhs began to arrive in Ohio after India's freedom from
British rule in 1947. They came for advanced education at
universities in the state. With liberalization of immigration laws
in the 196Os, many Sikhs settled in metropolitan areas and set up organizations to hold congregational prayer.
The Guru
Nanak Foundation of Greater Cleveland Area was named after
Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh Faith. The Foundation, which
at first used rental facilities for religious activities, was
incorporated in 1976. However, by 1980 it was able to purchase a
building at 3305 West 25th Street in Cleveland. Membership swelled during the 1980s, and in 1991 the congregation
decided to move the Gurdwara
to its
present location
in Richfield.
