  • At one time Chinese made about about 2/3 of Astoria's population. The area history museums fumble on this and don't talk about it. Like it never happened. Like the laws that kept them out of jobs were never on the books. Like they never existed. But they were here. They lived here. They contributed to our society. They made this country a better place. How did they get here, where did they live, and what happened to them after they left? While these bigger questions are not answered, this exhibit does at least acknowledge that Chinese lived here, just like you and me. They suffered, they lived, and they loved, just like you and me. This corner of town is well worth a visit. A visit for more than a few minutes. A visit that allows time to contemplate and imagine what was and what could have been.
  • Well design and tranquil. I found the garden by pure luck and enjoyed it, despite the rainy Oregon day.
  • Peaceful and Beautiful space. Great job Astoria!
  • Lovely small bit of peacefulness in the middle of town
  • Lovely art. A wonderful place of beauty. A nice place to sit and think, right in town.
