Chinese in Dallas:
1873 - 1940
BY STANLEY SOLAMILLO
A t the beginning of a new century in 2000, an
increasing number of Asian-owned and operated
establishments were located in the central business district
of Dallas. Although this appeared to be a new
phenomenon to the average passerby, a similar condition
existed in the city at the onset of the previous
century. In 1900 Chinese-owned and operated businesses
could be found throughout the downtown area
with roughly the same frequency.'
The last remaining Chinese grave marker in
Greenwood Cemetery is the tombstone of
laundry proprietor Jue Lee Hong, who died
September 15, 1900.
