Kam Wah Chung State
Kam Wah Chung Museum is
a must-see for anyone with an interest in Oregon history.
Built to preserve the legacy of the Chinese workforce in
Oregon, the museum contains artifacts and displays that share
some of the trials of everyday life of these people.
Chinese businessman Lung On and herbal doctor Ing Hay worked
out of this building. Dr. Hay administered care to the Chinese
gold-mine workers, pioneers, and others from the John Day area
and beyond by using traditional Chinese remedies.
The structure was built as a trading post on The Dalles
Military Road in the mid-1800's.
