AAA Editor Notes
Kam Wah Chung State Heritage Site is 1 blk. n. of US 26 next to the city park; the visitor center is at 125 N.W. Canton. The building, believed to be built sometime in the 1860s, was originally used as a trading post and later served as a Chinese doctor's office and store from the mid-1880s to the mid-1940s. In the early 1900s the Buddhist shrine from the town's temple was moved to a room in this building, and the site also became a religious center.

Displays include supplies, traditional Chinese medicines and herbs, business and financial records, and early western trade goods.

Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
