Collection & Archive

HPS preserves artifacts of Greek immigration to Northeast Ohio. These artifacts are donated by members of the Northeastern Ohio Greek Community. Our diverse collection consists of items made by or used by Greek immigrants as they emigrated to the area and made a new life for themselves.

In addition to the collection, the archives consist of photographs, manuscripts, and documents describing the Greek immigrant experience.

One special project HPS took on was to underwrite the cost to fully restore 30 icons from Annunciation Church of Cleveland, Ohio.  These icons were painted by Reverend John Zographos in 1929. After the restoration, the icons have been displayed at area churches.

There is currently a project underway to catalog and document our entire collection and to produce an online museum.

If you have items that represent the Greek Immigrant experience and are willing to donate them, please contact us at
