Texas Czech Heritage and Cultural Center

Czech us out!  With its rich heritage, it’s no surprise that La Grange is the hub for celebrating the Czech culture in Texas.  Over 80% of the Czech Moravian families that settled in Texas at some time lived in Fayette County before they spread out across the state.  Celebrating that colorful heritage, which deeply enriches this community, is the Texas Czech Heritage and Cultural Center.

At its 70-acre site neighboring the Fayette County Fairgrounds just east of La Grange on Hwy. 77, is the multifaceted home of the Texas Czech Heritage and Cultural Center.  A replica of a late 19th and early 20th century Czech Moravian community is being developed there, which includes authentic old Czech homes, businesses and an old dance hall.  There’s a wall depicting the names of Czech settlers who helped to found the city, an amphitheater built into a hill on a bank facing the mighty Colorado River, self-guided walking trails with legends in English and Czech, and a gift shop and library to trace your Czech ancestry.  Work is ongoing on the varied aspects of this celebration of culture.
