Description

Immediately after exiting Yingge Train Station are a No. of old buildings, most of which have been abandoned. The most well preserved of the old houses of this town is Wangyangju Residence on Wunhua Road. The two-story joint Sino-European style construction is red brick and the main gate and façade remain intact. There are 4 urns and a lightening rod that make this house seem like none other. On the same street there is Chengfa House and on Lane 668 of Yingtao Road is Buyun House—both built during the Japanese occupation period. These houses are obvious indication of cultural and industrial advancement. The construction, materials and interior design are testament to a certain style and individuality.
