The 3rd most used language inTexas is Czech, (after english and Spanish) There are thousands of Czech families in the state, some for over 150 years.
There is a Czech bakery and sausage shop in Schulenburg TX, and also a good one in Temple TX
The Temple one is quite good. It is
The Czech Heritage Bakery

Temple TX 76504
We also enjoyed a stop in September at the "Czech Bakery" on rt.52 in Owosso, Michigan---between Lansing and Flint. Great Bread and pastries.
I don't know the name of the place, but there is another good one in the Czech Cultural village in Cedar Rapids Iowa. They have a several block section of town devoted to Czech stores and shops, and a major Czech Museum and Cultural Center.
Same with the small villages of Wilbur NE, Wilson KS and Prague OK and New Prague MN. You need to share in the fun at the Tabor S D Summer heritage Weekend, what a great party.
For those geographically inclined, there was a major wave of Czech migration into the US about the time of the settling of the heart of the Plains area...basically a 150 mile wide strip reaching from Texas to Canada that straddles I-35. Many Czech communities survive to this day...and there are a few outposts also, like Deming New Mexico, where they make tons of Czech Sausage for their Fall Festival each year.
If you decide to visit Temple TX, be sure to take time to walk thru the Czech Museum there, It's a dandy.
Yes my Mother came from Praha in 1912, and has passed on much of the cultural history to me..I wish she had insisted that I master the language also
Our branch of the family was the only one to come cover back then, so thru the magic of email I am now beginning to communicate with cousins that I never have seen in the CR. It is an amazing process to see your family expand before your eyes!!
