From Boston to American Samoa, from Guam to Hawaii to Texas, and even to the Federated States of Micronesia, the National Park Service have a list of official historic places you should consider visiting for Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. And if you can’t visit a site this month, put ’em on your map for the future, whenever you’re nearby.
The National Register of Historic Places recognizes the historical contributions of Asian and Pacific peoples in the United States and its associated territories. From the early 1800s to the 21st century, Asian and Pacific peoples have played a vital role in the development of the United States and made lasting contributions in all elements of American society. The month of May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and this site showcases historic properties listed in the National Register and National Park units highlighting important aspects of the Asian and Pacific experience in America.
