Ceremony marks rebab of historic Isleton building

A celebration marking completion of the first phase of rehabilitation work on Isleton’s historic Bing Kong Tong building at 29 Main St. is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The open-to-public festivities, including a flag-raising ceremony, will be attended by officials of Sacramento County, the city of Isleton and Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency. A $600,000 project commenced in February to stabilize the building, which was rebuilt after a 1926 fire and was once the focal point for a thriving Chinese community in Isleton.
