The Austin History Center displayed the photo exhibit, "Pioneers from the East: First Chinese Families in
Austin" from April 27 to October 17, 2010. The exhibit highlighted the history of some of the first Chinese
individuals and families who settled in Austin. A reception, in partnership with the Texas Asian Chamber of
Commerce, took place on May 12, 2010 along with a program to honor the five families. Following the program,
attendees enjoyed a tour of the Austin History Center and viewed the archives of the five families. All of the
featured photographs were selected from the Asian American archival collection at the Austin History Center and
are now showcased in an online photo exhibit . In addition, the photo exhibit is available to partnering organizations
or institutions to borrow for display. For more information please contact, Esther Chung, Neighborhood Liaison at
