Chinatown is a neighborhood of Oakland. [NOTE: This is not the only community in California named Chinatown. For links to other places called Chinatown, CA, see the Duplicate Names box at right.]


The neighborhood is centered upon 8th and Webster streets.

Community residents come from a diverse pan-Asian background.

Also known as Oakland Chinatown
Many Chinese, primarily from southeastern China, came to Oakland in the middle of the 19th century, after the discovery of gold nearby.

Many Chinese from San Francisco fled here following the 1906 earthquake.

The area experienced a resurgence in the 1970s, when Southeast Asian refugees, began to relocate here.
