In 2015 the town of Locke celebrated the centennial of its founding in 1915. Located on the Sacramento River within the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Locke has the distinction of being the largest, most complete rural agricultural Chinese American community in the U.S. It is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Locke prides itself on its preservation of history, its commemoration to the first wave of Chinese immigrants who endured prejudice, alienation and poverty, as well as its persistence to exist despite the modernization and disappearance of towns like itself. We would like to express our gratitude to all our donors, members, volunteers, residents and visitors who have contributed to advocating for the preservation of Locke.
