The Suchy Building


The Suchy Building

In 1907, Mr. Frank Suchy and his wife, Theresa, constructed the Suchy Building in the Romanesque style to house their family  jewelry business.  The second floor was the Suchy family residence.  Over the years the building was home to several bars and restaurants, and served as the Henry Davison Youth Center for many years.  

The building was severely damaged in the Great Flood of 2008.  After the flood, with the aid of the I-Jobs Disaster Recovery Program, the Iowa Main Street Economic Development Authority, the Czech Village / New Bohemia Main Street District, the Iowa State Historic Preservation Office, and numerous community volunteers, Thorland Company carefully restored the building back to its original 1907 appearance.  

The building is a contributing structure to the Bohemian Commercial Historic District of Cedar Rapids.
