Chinese Residence
c. 1865. 65 E. Silver St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

This modest wood house was situated in the midst of Dayton's Chinese neighborhood—home during the nineteenth century to Hep Sing and Ty Kim, immigrants from Canton. The simple gable-end structure has single-wall construction supported by wood and stone piers. The house originally included three rooms with dividing walls composed of wide planks covered with fabric, newspapers, and wallpaper.
