Originally built in 1898 by Bohemian Immigrant Wenceslaus S. Broz, the building was designed by famed architect Cass Gilbert who is most well known in Minnesota for designing the state capital building.
A “first class” hotel was a measure of a town’s pride and prosperity. Hotel Broz played this role when constructed in New Prague in 1898. The local paper boasted, “One of the first and great requisites of any ambitious and rapidly growing city is a really first-class hotel, and in this respect the needs of New Prague are now supplied by Hotel Broz….”.
The original building featured 17 guest rooms, a dining room, a billiard hall, and the latest modern conveniences of the period: hot and cold running water, bath and toilet facilities, steam heating, and gas lighting and was considered to be among the finest hotels in Minnesota.
The building is most recently known as Schumacher’s which operated from 1974 until 2005. Schumacher’s was owned and operated by Chef Jon Schumacher, and was destination for those looking to enjoy a four-star European dining experience.
Since 2005 the building has changed hands several times with all the owners being passionately focused on restoring the hotel to its original beauty. Original tin ceilings, beams, and stained glass are featured throughout the space. New features include a modern commercial kitchen, a large patio made of reclaimed bricks framed by two wrought-iron staircases, and a ballroom space large enough to seat 300 guests.
