In 1918, early Slovene immigrants organized the Slovenian Independent
Society Home and later constructed this hall, which became the center
for Barberton Slovene cultural, social, and recreational activities.
They formed dramatic and singing clubs, conducting performances
in their native language. In the early twentieth century, prior to
employers providing insurance or health care for their workers,
the society acted to ensure sick and death benefits for its members.
It also prepared members for citizenship in their newly chosen
country. First generation Slovenes provided the labor that helped
spur the growth of local industries while succeeding generations
have continued to contribute to the community in various business,
industrial, professional, and governmental capacities.
