LOCAL PACIFIC-AMERICAN HISTORY

In the 1870's, one of the first Asian American groups in the eastern United States were located in Beaver County. Following labor disputes with their local employees, the Beaver Falls Cutlery Company contracted with Chinese workers from San Francisco and New Orleans in 1872. Hired to work at the Harmonist-owned factory, they were among the first Chinese immigrants in Pa. In 1882 a wave of anti-Chinese sentiment led Congress to pass the highly restrictive Chinese Exclusion Act, which prohibited nearly all immigration from China until it was repealed in 1943. -The Historical Marker Database
