Abstract or Summary
  • 210 East First Street (site 35WS453) contains the only extant remains of a once thriving Overseas Chinese settlement, in the city of The Dalles, Oregon. Very little is known about the everyday lives of these early settlers, or the pressures that they faced. This thesis will help to enrich the written historical record by providing essential background information, site analysis, and artifact analysis of gaming related artifacts, for a turn of the 19th/20th century Overseas Chinese mercantile, laundry, and gaming site. The archaeological and historic records of this site provide a rare glimpse into the past, one which details how a small group of partners and entrepreneurs established and maintained laundries, shops, and homes, in a Western frontier town while asserting ethnic identity. The experiences of these individuals helped to build the city of The Dalles, and the Western United States. It is important to add these Overseas Chinese life experiences and contributions into the historic record.
