San Francisco’s history spans thousands of years, from the original Ohlone people native to the area, to modern history and the earthquakes and economics of the city.

San Francisco is known for its historic Chinatown, which is traced back to the 49ers and the transcontinental railroad. The male Chinese immigrants seeking money and opportunity passed through Angel Island, just off the coast of San Francisco, and settled in what is now Chinatown.

At first, these Chinese immigrants faced discrimination, which limited the growth of the Chinese district. The limiting decrees were repealed in the 1950s, allowing the community to flourish.
