Boston’s Chinatown is rich with history, tradition, excitement, gifts, culture, and great food. Tourists flock from all over the world to see the Chinese culture behind Chinatown’s walls.

Chinese Merchants Association Building (On Leong Building)

On its dedication in 1951, the Chinese Merchants Association building was intended as a new landmark for Chinatown as well as its first community center. With its traditional roof pagoda, impressive façade of balconies, and side lanterns, the building represented a visible entrance to Chinatown. However, one-third of the building was demolished due to the construction of the Central Artery and the Massachusetts Turnpike Extension in 1954.
