An Expanded Permanent Version of
Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns
Beyond the Gate was created as a temporary exhibit for the Oregon Historical Society by Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis with the help of the Portland Chinatown History Foundation. It was presented for three months in spring, 2016 and then dismantled. We are deeply grateful to the Oregon Historical Society for allowing the Foundation to bring the Chinatown community’s story home.
