Hidden Histories: Pendleton’s Early Chinese Community: Underground Tunnel Myth vs. Above-Ground History
The Portland Chinatown Museum is pleased to announce the ninth and final program in the Hidden Histories: Oregon's Early Chinatowns and Chinese Worker Settlements series, which was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities. Please join us on Saturday, December 18, with featured speakers Priscilla Wegars and Renae Campbell.

Since at least the 1980s, tourism, media depictions, and even well-known works of fiction have promoted the idea that nineteenth-century Chinese immigrants built and occupied an extensive tunnel network under the city of Pendleton, Oregon, and in many other locations throughout the American West. In this program, Priscilla Wegars, Ph.D., and Renae Campbell, M.A., will explore these "Chinese tunnel" rumors and compare those in Pendleton with the historical record of Pendleton’s Chinese community.
