Uncovering and Interpreting Salem’s Chinese Shrine

Thursday, October 22 at 6:00pm

Virtual Event

Inside the Salem Pioneer Cemetery is a relatively unknown shrine that was used by residents of Salem’s Chinatown from the late 1800s through the 1940s. Join Kimberli Fitzgerald, archaeologist and historic preservation officer with the City of Salem, to learn about the public archaeology project that uncovered the shrine—one of the few remnants of the city’s early Chinese immigrant history—and how the practice of public archaeology can help amplify the stories of Oregon’s historically marginalized communities.
