Field Study Research Report.

The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience and the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) are embarking on a project to deepen understanding of the Filipino American presence in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District (CID) by furthering previous survey projects through an in-depth research report focusing on 5 heritage sites. Findings from this research report will be used to: expand and enrich neighborhood tours conducted by the Wing Luke Museum; be shared in a public event to raise further awareness of Filipino Americans in the neighborhood; and serve as case study properties for potential future research and preservation activities.The preservation consultant will identify 5 sites, focusing on sites with a balance of tangible and intangible resources, variation in different periods of significance, and diversity in type of establishment. The preservation consultant will conduct further field study of each of the 5 sites and compile findings in a research report. The report would include preservation recommendations for each of the sites.

This project includes:
• Coordinating with project partners to select 5 sites
