Chinese Luminary Art bench

Christen Derr


On southbound side of Main St. between 3rd and 4th

Created in remembrance of the Chinese workers' contributions to Chico's early history, and donated in memory of Andrea Spressards (1980-2004). The bench tells the story of the murders of Shu In, Ah Lee, Ah Gow and Ah Quen at the Lemm Ranch in 1877 as a means to remember, but also to celebrate the resilience and diversity of the City of Chico. The bench was commissioned by Spressards' friends and family.
