Description

This old house on the bustling section three of Beishen Road stands out for a No. of reasons. By virtue of the fact that it was built in the fourth year of the Dazheng Qing Dynasty reign period and that stone and Fuzhou wooden statues were used as building materials, the three-walled courtyard-style house has been preserved as a grade three historical site. Old homes like this have quaint exterior aspects such as "swallows tails" indicating stature and "horseback" eaves.
