About the Lavaca
Between 1830 and 1930 approximately 60,000 immigrants from the Bohemia , Moravia, and Silesia regions of the modern-day Czech Republic journeyed to Texas, arriving mostly through the ports of Galveston and the old port of Indianola. While many settled in the Hill Country, quite a few settled in the Golden Crescent region (Victoria, Lavaca, DeWitt, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, and Calhoun counties). The Lavaca was inspired by the farmhouse built by George Lesikar in rural Victoria county, Texas in 1914- a house that is happily occupied 100 years later.
