Chinatown was relocated in 1938 to its present location from the
area where Union Station is now. The Chinese Historical Society
of Southern California has actively promoted community history
through an ongoing Walking Tour of the New Chinatown Program
begun in 1981. Thousands of people have taken our educational
tours, guided by well-trained docents.
A tour can be anywhere from 1 hour to 4 hours. It is dependent
on the availability of our volunteer docents. An $8 donation
requested from each individual being given a tour. There is a
minimum of 10 people required in a group tour. Please call our
office for an appointment, (323) 222-0856.
If you prefer to go on a self guided tour you can pick up a
self-guided walking historic trail brochure from our office at
411 Bernard Street, Los Angeles, California. We are located
between Hill and Broadway by the entrance to freeway 110 North.
