Bing Kong Tong

Bing Kong Tong Building - 27 Main Street, Isleton. This 1926 structure is two stories with an angled, stepped parapet false front with peaked corners and a central flagpole. Tin sheathing covers the frame structure. The upper front facade has a recessed balcony with shed roof, with original lights below, topped with a central louvre. A central doorway, beneath a signboard with Chinese characters proclaiming "Bing Kung Tong," is flanked by single pane sash windows. The lower story has arched entryways on either side with glass and panel doors behind. The central portion of the lower front facade has vertical tongue and groove siding beneath multi-paned windows

This is one of the few buildings in the district that was built by Chinese
carpenters and laborers, as opposed to local contractors. For many years the lower floor of the Tong buildings was used as a town hall.
