Subjects of the Mikado: Sheridan County’s Japanese Community 1900-1930

Join Sheridan Community Land Trust for Explore History: Secrets of the Mikado, held December 27, 2022.

Between 1910 and 1930, dozens of men, women and children of Japanese descent lived and worked in Sheridan County. Who were they? What did they do while they were here? Why did they leave just as abruptly as they arrived?

These questions and more are among those asked and answered by Sheridan County historian Cynde Georgen in her program, “Subjects of the Mikado: Sheridan County’s Japanese Community, 1900-1930.” Using contemporary newspaper reports, census records, newly discovered family histories and other sources, Georgen shines the light of detailed research on one of the county’s most interesting “disappeared” communities.
