Thank you to our supporters for helping
us reach our goal!
The National Historic Landmark Harada House tells the story of the Harada Family and their struggles to achieve the American Dream. The site and story embody local, state, national, and international issues of civil and individual rights, democracy, immigration, assimilation, racial prejudice, and citizenship. It is truly an American story. The Harada House property, owned by the Riverside Metropolitan Museum (A department of the City of Riverside), is fragile and in need of significant repair. Furthermore, because it is located in a residential neighborhood, opening the House to the public for interpretation has its challenges. Recently, the house next door, referred to as the Robinson House, was put up for sale giving the Museum the opportunity to purchase the home to be used as an interpretive center for the Harada House. Not only will it function as an interpretive center, but it is also part of the Harada family's story.
Thanks to the many organizations and individuals that donated and advocated on our behalf, we are pleased to announce that escrow has closed on the purchase of the Robinson House. But our work is not done yet! We continue our mission, and now must raise the funds to renovate the National Historic Landmark Harada House. The interpretive center, combined with the ongoing preservation of the Harada House, will ensure that the story of the Harada Family and its significance to immigration, social justice, and the pursuit of the American Dream continue to be shared for generations to come.
purchase the house, the Museum had to raise $200,000 to buy
the property and make it habitable. Want to learn more about the Harada family
