Speaker: Liz Stewart
Glimpse of Chico's Chinese in the 1880s, 1890s, and into the turn of the century.
Chico's Chinatowns no longer exist, and the Chinese appear to have left no written history of their own-nothing in their own voice.
While many Chinese lived and worked on ranches, farms, and in lumber camps throughout Butte County, this presentation will be about "Old" and New Chinatown" in Chico.
Who built them and what was life like for the men and women who lived there? From historic maps, census data, newspaper accounts, and photographs, researchers have tried to describe this population.
Special thanks to the City of Chico for its generous support of Chico History Museum.
