The Chinatown Mall is destined to be a vibrant link to Sacramentos Downtown and The Railyards. During the Gold Rush, this area was largely populated with Chinese immigrants and later became a refuge as Sun Yet Sen stayed to write the constitution of what was then to be a free and modern China. In the 1960s, the Sacramento Redevelopment Agency began the establishment of a Chinatown Mall in the area where the Confucius Temple had just been built. Today, Chinese family association halls, elders, and a Chinese language school help keep Chinese culture alive.
