History

Vaclav Stepanek built the first Czech dance hall where Prague Hotel now stands in 1869.Gottlieb Storz built the Prague Hotel in 1898, as a three-story brick building that provided Nebraska's Czech immigrants with familiarities in their new country. It was established in the city in the 1870s. For more than forty years it remained the only hotel catering to Bohemians between Chicago and the Pacific Coast.

In 1987 the building was rehabilitated and converted into apartments. Local architectural firm Prochaska & Associates won awards for their renovation work on the building.
