Chinese History

Due to intensive advertising in Asia, by the eve of the Civil War, the Chinese population in California had reached 34,933. Many found gold in the crevices overlooked by the initial 49ers.

Our Chinese exhibit includes photographs, tombstones, medicine bottles and herbs, a wooden gold pan, brass spoons and an incense burner.
