Image of a settlement of Slovaks,in Zellwood, FL March 28, 1911.Photo taken during a visit by Slavia Colony Co. reps from Ohio, who were seeking property for a new settlement in FL. Although this community of Slovaks was some distance from Slavia, there was fellowship between the families of both settlements and a number of the Zellwood families became active members of St. Luke's Lutheran Church and had children who were confirmed in the little wood church in 1924. The men at far left (one likely the driver hired for the tour), the three women and two children are unidentified. But it is probable that the man standing at the right is George Galla, a member of the team dispatched to search for land for the new community.
