Chinese and Jewish Americans and the Making of Portland On view March 1, 2024 – July 7, 2024 Included with general admission.

The Pittock Mansion Society proudly presents its latest exhibition, “From Near and Far: Chinese and Jewish Americans and the Making of Portland, 1840s-1930s.” Delve into the rich tapestry of Portland’s history as we spotlight two of the city’s earliest non-Native settlers, illuminating their often overlooked yet indispensable contributions to shaping the Portland we know today.

This captivating exhibit chronicles the transformative impact of Chinese and Jewish Portlanders on the city’s business landscape, agricultural development, political evolution, and industrial growth. In the face of different, but overlapping challenges and prejudices, Chinese and Jewish Portlanders developed ways to care for their own communities.

The Pittock Mansion Society extends its heartfelt gratitude to the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education, the Portland Chinatown Museum, and Norm Gholston for their invaluable contributions to the exhibit. Through their shared knowledge and loaned photographs and objects, these esteemed collaborators have enriched the narrative of “From Near and Far.”
