Two Phases: 

  • This exhibition is Phase I, the first phase. The goal is to share and highlight the culture, contribution, and participation of the Chinese American community in the City of Fresno. Over the past 150 years, the Chinese have lived, worked, and belonged to this community like all the ethnic groups that claim this city as their home. This exhibition is the first museum presentation of the Chinese in the Fresno area.
  • Phase II is to find a permanent home for some of the artifacts showcased in the Kearney Mansion Museum exhibition. There are three possible outcomes that we will ponder and examine. There is a Fresno County Historical Museum within the Fresno Fairgrounds. Another possibility is in a building purchased by the Fresno County Historical Society. And a third possibility is the establishment of a Chinatown Museum.

If you always give, you will always have.
