El Cerrito site up for historic landmark consideration

Will El Cerrito be getting its first official landmark? That’s the question the State Historical Resources Commission is considering today in Sacramento.
The former Chung Mei home for Chinese boys on Elm Street in El Cerrito is one of the current nominees the commission is examining at its meeting today.
The ornamented 1930s building most recently was Windrush School and now is owned by the Chamberlin Foundation, which is seeking to house a charter school there.
The site ins nominated as a historic district, meaning the designation would apply to the original building, related buildings and surrounding grounds.
