The Ah Quin Trolley Naming Ceremony

September 10, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Ah Quin, known as the unofficial mayor of Chinatown, was a major figure in the development of San Diego’s Chinese-American community from the late 1800s to early 1900s. His legacy is being honored by the Old Town Trolley Tours with the debut of a trolley to be named, “Ah Quin.”

Join us as we unveil the trolley and take a ride through the Gaslamp Quarter on its maiden voyage. Cyndie Soo, 4th Generation Descendant, will present her research on Ah Quin Genealogy and Murray Lee, Curator of Chinese-American History at SDCHM, will present on Ah Quin’s life in San Diego.
