Bohemia Eye Doctors
Bohemia is a Hamlet located in Suffolk County within the town of Islip. Bohemia, Long Island was founded in 1855. It was named Bohemia because it was settled by Slavic immigrants from a mountainous village near Kada in the Central European Kingdom of Bohemia. An important contribution they made to the development of Long Island was adding their rich Central European folklore to the local culture. The founders were John Vavra, John Kratchovil, Joseph Koula, and their wives. Joseph Koula was a cabinet maker and built a house for each pair and part of one home still exists. The community was named for a region in the Czech Republic. The former and merged names include New Tabor. In 1869, many establishments were constructed including a one-room schoolhouse. Cigar making was Bohemias first industry. The business continued until about 1930 when machine-made cigars in New York City substituted most made by hand.
Dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of the hamlet, the Bohemia Historical Society (BHS) was founded in 1984. This non-profit local organization pursues this goal through its educational programs, slide presentations, involvement in community activities, a newsletter, its website and its museum. The museum was officially opened on April 26, 2009, and it houses a number of exhibits depicting life in the early days of Bohemia, a photograph collection, and a book collection that includes many historical Czech manuscripts.
Additionally, the building serves as the society meeting place.
