The Chinatown Plaque Project is a monumental rock — inscribed in Chinese and English — recognizing the significant contribution the Chinese community made to the rapid growth of early Nelson.

Dedication of this permanent visible reminder — at the corner of Hall and Vernon Streets — was to be the high point of Nelson’s recent first Chinatown Week, but it had to be postponed because the long winter in high elevations made it impossible to get this donated homegrown rock down in time from Tom Cherry’s rock farm.

Down it finally came, and the dedication ceremony will take place this Sunday, June 12, at noon.

The Chinatown Plaque Project is funded by the City of Nelson and the Columbia Basin Trust.
