At the time of its nomination, it consisted of 75 resources. These resources included 48 contributing buildings and 27 non-contributing buildings. Bohemian immigrants began settling in Cedar Rapids in the 1850s, and increasingly after the American Civil War in the 1860s and the Prussian War in Austria in 1880. They grew to be the largest ethnic group in the city, and the only one to settle in a distinct part of Cedar Rapids. They settled along the Cedar River between the downtown area and the T.M. Sinclair and Company meat packing plant. The buildings in the district were constructed between the 1880s and the 1930s and are largely narrow-front commercial buildings and corner blocks. The buildings housed a variety of commercial establishments including a movie theater, two banks and several filling stations. The district also includes a railroad corridor factory building, a fire station and fraternal halls. The buildings are representative of various commercial architectural styles and vernacular building forms popular at the times they were built. The Lesinger Block (1883) and the C.S.P.S. Hall (1891) are individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
