The Promise of Gold Mountain: Tucson's Chinese Heritage

Gung hei fat choi! Chinese New Year celebration began on February 10th.

The Promise of Gold Mountain: Tucson's Chinese Heritage is a tribute to the contributions of Chinese immigrants to Tucson, Arizona, and our region.

From the immigrant railroad workers of the late 1800's to the civic leaders of today, Chinese-Americans have consistently contributed their energy, talent and culture to enrich the Tucson community. Using text and photographs, this exhibit traces the history of Chinese-Americans in Tucson, including short biographies of some prominent members of Tucson's Chinese-American community.

We especially wish to thank Mrs. Esther Don Tang, prominent civic leader and businesswoman, who has gratiously shared her family history with us.
