A historical landmark is the Chinese temple and garden. It was built in 1863 to serve as a spiritual hub for a community of over 10,000 Chinese. Today it serves as a cultural museum with a beautiful zen garden for visitors to let go of the worries of modern society. It also serves as a pillar of remembrance for the first Chinese to settle in the west and an active hub of eastern philosophy. Other claims to fame for Oroville include being the place where the olive-canning industry was born and the town where Ishi, a member of the Yahi Indians, joined western society.
