The Boarding House was built in 1909 to board the workers of the Southern Pacific Railroad. The shipping warehouse is located across the River Road. The Boarding house was later purchased by the Kuramoto family, who operated the Boarding House from 1920 to 1942. The Kuramoto family was interned during WWII and did not return to resume operation of the Boarding House after the War. In 2008 it became the Locke Boarding House, a unit of the State Park System.

Built in 1915 by Bing Lee, this gambling hall was in continuous operation until 1950 when the Sacramento County officials closed its doors. The name Dai Loy means ‘Big Welcome’ in Chinese. Pai Ngow, Fan Tan, and the Chinese lottery using 80 Chinese characters were the games of chance that were popular among Chinese gamblers. It is now restored as a museum with displays of the games and tables and Chinese artifacts as well as archival photographs from the Delta.

Locke’s Jan Ying Benevolent Association dates back to the founding of Locke in 1915. The Jan Ying building, centrally located on the east side of Main Street Locke, was the social center and informal headquarters for the men from the Zhongshan District of China. The men could go there to read and converse in their local dialect. The field workers received mail and assistance in writing and translation. They read Chinese newspapers, played games of chess, dominoes, fan-tan, and mahjong.
