Fodor's Review

This ramshackle building was a trading post on The Dalles Military Road in 1866 and 1867, then later served as a general store, a Chinese labor exchange for the area's mines, a doctor's shop, and an opium den. Having been listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, the museum is an extraordinary testament to the early Chinese community in Oregon. Tours are on the hour with groups limited to 10 people; if you miss it, you can always catch the 19-minute video

lecture given by the curator.
