Asian American Historic Properties Survey
The City of Phoenix sponsored this survey to identify and document historic buildings, structures, districts, and places associated with the history of Asian Americans in Phoenix, 1870-1960.

The project has two parts:

  1. The creation of a broad, contextual history of the experiences of Asian Americans in Phoenix.
  2. The identification of the houses, neighborhoods, businesses, schools, churches, farms, and other places that represent this history.

The documents on the right are the final report, compiled from research conducted at various archival facilities, reviews of topic-related literature, community outreach connections, and oral histories. The report addresses social, political, and cultural history.

There are two copies of the report on this site. One is the complete final report, which is 25MB. The other is the same report, divided into sections for downloading at slower speeds. Both require Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5 or higher.
