The Ah Louis Store is historically significant not only as a surviving building from the historic Chinese-American community in San Luis Obispo, but also through its identification with the Chinese-American pioneer Ah Louis, or On Wong. Now home to Karson Butler Events' retail gift shop, this store was the center of Chinatown in San Luis Obispo from 1874 to 1930 and the house of Ah Louis and his family of eight children from 1885 to 1936.
