Visit Us

It's easy to find the Joss House. We're located in Downtown Auburn, next to Old Town Pizza and right across the street from The Pour Choice.

 

Due to COVID-19, we are not currently open to the public. We are eager to welcome you back to our museum as soon as possible.

Because we are not able to share our history with you in person, we hope you will enjoy these letters along with photos of the Joss House and historical artifacts.

If you think traveling away from home and hearing from your loved ones that "everything is just fine, except . . . " is unique to you, have a look at these letters we found inside the Joss House.  Not ancient by any standard (these are from the 1960's), they still provide insight into the home lives of Chinese immigrants to Auburn.  Special thanks to Yin-Ping Li and David Lei for their efforts in translating this correspondence.
