Kam Wah Chung Museum Tours

May 1, 2022 October 31, 2022

Once a general store, a doctor’s office, and a center of Chinese social and religious life, it is now one of the most unusual museums you will find anywhere. Kam Wah Chung (translates to “Golden Chinese Outpost”) & Co. is a one-of-a-kind property. Built in 1865, the building’s earliest customers were primarily Chinese residents of Canyon City and the John Day area who were attracted by work generated by eastern Oregon’s gold strikes of the period. Some chronicles suggest it served travelers as a trading post. Register online at Oregon State Parks.
