The Croatian American Social Club was organized in November of 1932, and eventually bought property on Franklin Ave. in Aliquippa. The Croatian Singing Society "Jadran" was incorporated on August 21, 1934, and purchased property at 95 Sheffield Avenue, Aliquippa. This organization , which was primarily a choir, also organized the Jadran Jr. Tamburitzans in 1957, which are still in existence today. In August of 1958, the Croatian American Social Club and the Singing Society "Jadran" officially merged and were incorporated under the name Croatian Social and Glee Club "Jadran". In 1960 this organization purchased the property of our present location. June 4, 1966 was the ground breaking of the current facility. On April 2, 1967, the (current) Aliquippa Croatian Center officially opened at 2365 Concord Street. Today the Croatian Center remains an active center for the preservation of Croatian Culture, hosting the Jadran Jr. Tamburitzans and Ansambl Sv. Nikola. The Croatian Center also hosts many other public and private events through the year and is available to book for weddings, showers or parties.
