Take a closer look at the south end of downtown Cedar Rapids. Discover how this area began as an early Bohemian/Czech neighborhood and was transformed into a thriving wholesale/warehouse district between 1905 and 1950 that included several railroad freight stations. Highlights include the many remaining historic warehouse/wholesale structures and buildings used for manufacturing such as an ice cream factory and a large bakery.
