Kam Wah Chung State Heritage Site

Northeastern Oregon

Don't miss this site, located in an 1865 building that served primarily as an apothecary for the noted Chinese herbalist and doctor Ing Hay. It was also a community center, temple, general store and opium den for the Chinese population that reworked the area's mine tailings. Visits are by 45-minute guided tour only; tours start on the hour in the nearby interpretive center.
