National Register of Historic Places Honors Asian-Pacific Heritage Month

"Celebrating Asian-Pacific Heritage Month May 2000" highlights featured historic sites, publications, related articles, and links to History in the Parks which tell the history of the Asian and Pacific peoples role in the development of the United States from the early 1800s to the present. The National Park's Golden Spike National Historic Site, featured on the site, interprets the social, labor, and ethnic history surrounding the connection of the first Transcontinental Railroad, largely achieved through the labor of Asian immigrants, which took place on May 10, 1869. Other historic sites tell the story of Asian immigration and assimilation into the United States. Related articles featuring Hawaiian and Pacific Island perspectives on preservation can be linked to in the "related articles" section and the "History in the Parks" section.

The publications found on this site come through Teaching with Historic Places, the program which offers a series of award-winning lesson plans that use places listed in the National Register to enliven the study of history, social studies, and geography and include "Locke and Walnut Grove: Havens for Early Asian Immigrants in California."
