Jack and Sandy Huang found Newland Computers, named in commemoration of their hope and dreams for the "new land" of the United States after immigrating from China in 1989. The business, known today as PC Land, starts off as a quaint little shop occupying only 200 square feet in Colony Park on South Main Street, Blacksburg.
