Sonora ChinatownThis monument is dedicated to the memory of the Chinese Pioneers who for years made this section their home. It was a city within a city whose residents were isolated from their surrounding neighbors by a barrier of language, custom and religion. Originally known as the "Tigre", for years this area bore a somber reputation noted for the fondas and fandango houses that catered to Sonora's rougher element. In the 1860's, the Tigre began to assume an Oriental character and during the next century became known as Chinatown.
