Description:

Over 130 years ago the first members of the Chinese community came to Augusta to deepen the city's canal. After the canal was completed, others came with families forming in the oldest Chinese community in the Southeast. The Augusta-Richmond County Public Library is proud to host an award winning collection of photographs and memorabilia depicting the history of the Chinese community in Augusta. The Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of Augusta will open the exhibit by presenting the library with a collection of oral histories from elders in the community. The oral histories enhance the exhibit and is a resourse for the stories behind the photographs and articles on display.
