Historically, Yanping Street(延平街) in Anping District(安平區) in Tainan City wasknown as the first commercial street in Taiwan, however, the concept of “Jie (mean
street)” at that time was more like a “settlement” rather then a modern idea of streetor road. The first official urban-plan street is the Mingquan Street (民權路) where ourhouse is located in the Dutch Formosa ruling era in Taiwan .
Our tree house was just located in the crossroads of Shizi Da Jie (十字大街) in MingDynasty (14th)
Zifang Jie in Qing Dynasty. Zifang Jie is also a political center since the settlement was just beside houses for the Chieftain Officer of Taiwan (called Zongbing 總兵), Mr. Ceng Yongfu (曾永福), in old time. Unfortunately, Ceng’s house had beendemolished in later era and the only remaining door is inside our house.
As urban developed, this area was later known as the
In regard to urban development in this area, Shizi Da Jie was in the core area for trade. For example, in the right side of the settlement was named as Xie Jie (shoes
street) and grass & flower Jie. As to the left side, there were a Zhu Zi Jie (bamboo
street) or Da Yin (silver street) and a Shang Heng Jie, etc.
Our house is a classical Min-Style house compound. For the restoration of this historical house, we tried our best to keep and restored it authentically. You could appreciate old time material world with original red-brick roof top, patio, old glass windows, structures and aura inside.
