The Hungarian Self Culture Society of Welland was first established by immigrant settlers from Hungary in 1921 and on January 1st, 1925 the Hungarian Hall was built. The founders were Frank Ahman, C. Kovacs, John Szuch, Louis Szabo, Victoria Szabo, and Joseph Videki. The Hungarian Self Culture Society of Welland began with a strong-willed group of new immigrants who believed in maintaining and building the Hungarian culture in their new home, Canada.
This is the same attitude we carry today as the Hungarian Self Culture Society of Welland and we are firm believers in preserving our roots and culture. We also believe it is important to adapt to our constantly changing society. We welcome all newcomers with open arms!
