Unfortunately, we arrived just after the main exhibit at the museum was closed, but there was still plenty to see. China Camp is exactly what it sounds like, a place where Chinese immigrants settled and started an incredibly successful shrimp business. This was back in the 1880s. This is homeschooling at it’s best!
We discovered that the last remaining resident of China Camp, Frank Quan had passed a few days previous. He is obviously very missed, and I couldn’t help but feel I had missed out not knowing this person. I had a wave of sadness at losing living history.
