Dosan himself never lived at the Ahn House at USC. It retains great historical significance because of its function as a central location in the Korean community in America. While Dosan was traveling the world to fight for independenc from Japan's evil colonial rule in Korea, the Ahn family was living in Los Angeles. All the Ahn children were born in Southern California. But, Dosan never lived South of Wilshire Blvd while he stayed in America. Helen Ahn resided in the house on what is now the USC campus with the five Ahn children from the 1936 to the early 1950s. All of the homes in San Francisco, Riverside and Los Angeles where the Ahns lived served as an important gathering places for many Korean-Americans and Independence Movement work.
