Heinlenville – San Jose, CA
The plan of creating a six-block Chinatown came from farmer and businessman, John Heinlen. The year was 1887 and the location was Sixth Street and Cleveland Street. This plan, however, caused public outrage from the non-Chinese community. He then instead decided to name the area Heinlenville. Heinlenville was a Chinese dominant area filled with a variety of merchants, barbers, traditional doctors, Chinese herbal medicine, and the Ng Shing Gung temple.
