Czech immigrants began settling in this area in the 1850's. They named their new community Frydek after a town in their
homeland. When two people died in 1885, they were buried here on land owned by Jan Pavlicek. By 1890, when Pavlicek
officially deeded the land to be consecrated by the church, there were thirteen graves in the cemetery. In 1907 the
citizens erected a school building here, used also as a church and nun's home. The structure was moved to the center of
town in 1916. The cemetery remains as a reminder of the area's Czech heritage.
