Reno Chinatown

Presented by Historic Reno Preservation Society

Edan Strekal, Project Archivist, Special Collections, University of Nevada, Reno, presents "Reno Chinatown"

Like other mining and railroad towns in the American West, Reno had a Chinatown that originated with the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad.  Displaced Chinese laborers built a bare-wood shantytown along the Truckee River out of any available material.  First Street between Virginia and Center streets became Chinatown and existed along the periphery of the larger community for nearly 40 years.
