Preserve historic temple

By The Bakersfield Californian

I just read about the historic Let Sing Gong Temple, located at 18th and R streets ("Historic Chinese temple in downtown at a crossroads," Feb. 10).

I would like to see the city of Bakersfield designate it as a historic building so it is protected for future generations. The city has lost many historic buildings to development. Maybe it is time to save some of the last remaining treasures from the city's past.

The Chinese people that came to Kern County in the 1800s were instrumental in the economic, social and spiritual development of our community. I feel it is important to preserve this important part of our history and culture.
