Anaheim History Speaker Series: The Last Remnants of Anaheim's Chinatown (All ages) at Central

Wednesday, November 17, 2021


Orange County’s largest Chinatown was established in the early 1870s near the center of Anaheim.  By 1890, 75% of California’s agricultural workforce was Chinese. Anaheim’s “China Town” is depicted on 1907 and 1911 Sanborn maps near what was the center of the original colony at Los Angeles and Center Streets. In 1924, this small community was demolished for health concerns and the last building torn down in 1940. This presentation by Ivan Strudwick, Archaeologist at LSA, describes artifacts that were found when this historic area was recently graded for development.
