The Chinese Historical Society of New England (CHSNE) is a nonprofit entity incorporated in Massachusetts in 1992.
It is the first educational organization dedicated solely to documenting, preserving, and promoting the history and legacy of Chinese immigration in New England. The CHSNE is governed by board members and staff representing a wide range of experiences, perspectives, and expertise. Active community collaboration and membership participation underline our program development, exhibit design and collection building.
We believe that the history of a multi-dimensional community should not be left to the interpretation and safekeeping by only a selected few. Based in Boston’s Chinatown, the CHSNE advocates historical conservation that respects both the physical built environment and its host community.
