St John’s Catholic Club

Located behind the church, at 414 Barnett Ave, is the St John’s Catholic Club. Built in 1925, the club aimed to keep Croatian men off the streets and out of trouble. Inside the club there is a bar, pool table, and a 6 lane bowling alley. There are still active leagues and the building can be rented out for functions.

Don Wolf, a local photographer, is in my opinion a very talented and interesting person. He is from the local Kansas City Croatian neighborhood Strawberry Hill, which was partially demolished years ago for the construction of the I-70 project. He does a lot of neat stuff to support Croatian orphanages.
