There Was a Chinatown Here – a new digital exhibit

The Market Street Chinatown Archaeology Project is very pleased to announce our new digital exhibit, There Was a Chinatown Here.

The exhibit tells the story of San Jose’s historic Chinese community through artifacts, stories, and videos. This new website is the result of the joint efforts of Stanford archaeologists and members of Chinese Historical and Cultural Project.

In addition to creating an on-line venue for interpreting this important chapter of San Jose’s history, the digital exhibit is linked through QR codes to artifact displays in the Chinese American Historical Museum. Visitors can scan the QR codes with their smartphone or tablet to be instantly linked to the videos, photographs, and stories in the digital exhibit.

Please, visit our new online exhibit, There Was a Chinatown Here.
