East at Main Street

Few sites associated with Asian Pacific Islander (API) American history and culture have been recognized as landmarks. Raising awareness of these places will assist their preservation for the future. Help us uncover and share information and memories reflecting the historical and cultural contributions of API Americans. By illustrating the range of ethnicity, religion, class, occupation, and gender that make up API communities, we will help create a more complete picture of United States history.
