Traveling Exhibition


Exhibit Overview in Blanding

A century ago, America completed the largest infrastructure undertaking, for its time, built almost entirely by the hands of immigrants from around the world, connecting the east and west coasts with the Transcontinental Railway. This exhibition guides you through the experience of Chinese immigrants in the United States and their contribution to that undertaking. Consider, as you explore the exhibit, the effects of landscape, material culture and social connections to workers daily life along the railroad in this unique and unparalleled period of American history.
