Gracanica Serbian Orthodox Church
Our Serbian Community roots in Windsor and Essex County go back to the turn of the last century. There were very few immigrants from the homeland; they had come mainly from the areas that were still under the Austro-Hungarian Empire or the remnants of the Ottoman Empire occupation. Those early immigrants settled in the Detroit and Windsor area.
Many more Serbs came to North America after WWI and especially after WWII. Today’s Serbian community was also significantly enlarged during the recent fall and separation by the Republics of Communist Yugoslavia. Canada again became a home for many people that were expelled from their homes and our community gained a significant number of Serbian people.
