Kam Wah Chung Museum is a must-see for anyone with an interest in Oregon history. This structure was built as a trading post on The Dalles Military Road in the mid-1800′s. Chinese businessman Lung On and herbal doctor Ing Hay worked out of this building. Dr. Ing administered care to the Chinese gold-mine workers, pioneers, and others from the John Day area and beyond by using traditional Chinese remedies.

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.

The Kam Wah Chung and Co. Museum and Interpretive Center is open daily May 1 – Oct. 31, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Museum guided tours start at the top of each hour and last about 45 minutes. Final tour starts at 4 p.m. each day. Call (541) 575-2800 or (800) 551-6949 for more information.
