The tour is an hour long and allows visitors a guided immersive experience through the historically preserved spaces of the old Freeman Hotel. Visitors will have a chance to visit the very first Chinese import/export shop ever established in 1913, Yick Fung, walk through the halls of the old hotel to see how our Asian Pacific immigrant pioneers called home in the early 1900s, and step inside a Family Association hall to explore the way the communities organized themselves.
