Oregon Humanities: Hidden Histories: The Dalles Chinatown: Remembering a Community

September 18, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


The Portland Chinatown Museum presents the seventh program in the Hidden Histories: Oregon’s Early Chinatowns and Chinese Worker Settlements series on Saturday, September 18, with featured speakers and archaeologists Jacqueline Cheung and Eric Gleason.

Using maps, newspaper articles, photographs, and National Archives documents, Cheung and Gleason will explore the early development of the Dalles and the formation of its Chinatown. This historical documentation, along with the archaeological excavations of Wing Hong Hai Company Store, help reveal the everyday lives of the merchants and their families who once lived in The Dalles Chinatown. Although abandoned for more than 80 years, there are still many stories their former home can tell.

This program is supported by a grant from Oregon Humanities. RSVP for this event here.
