In the "Asian Pacific Historic
District", this California Mission Revival-style building was designed by Louis Gill,
nephew and protégé of Irving Gill. The facade of the one-story chapel features a sloping
red-tile roof over a central bell tower. The Chinese
Mission, located in the building until 1960, served as a social center where Chinese
immigrants learned English and received religious instruction. The building was relocated
to this site in 1995 from First Avenue between "G" and Market.
San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is now located in this building.
