Joss House in Evanston, Wyoming

A Joss House in Evanston, Wyoming

The Chinese temple that stood in Evanston's Chinatown from 1874 until 1922.

The Chinese population flourished from the late 1870's to the early 1920's. In 1922 the Joss House mysteriously burned to the ground. While some of the Chinese remained in Evanston, many chose to relocate to follow the mining and railroad booms throughout the west.
