Lutaoyang Jiang Family Historic House Lutaoyang Jiang Family Historic House

The Lutaoyang Jiang Family Historic House is located between Tainan, Yujing and Nansi. It is generally acknowledged to be the largest and most well-preserved traditional Fukien style farming village.

The area covers 3.5 hectares, and includes 200 year-old mud-cornered houses and bamboo-weaved houses, as well as red-brick houses and washed-pebbles houses dating back to the Japanese occupation.

It epitomizes Taiwan's architectural changes over the past 300 years. Of especial interest are the ten or so buildings that form a single living compound, preserving the cultural history of the Song-Jiang Battle Array.

The whole village is under office management, and the construction of tall buildings is strictly forbidden here. The Jiang family descendants have increased in number, and from the start, have always maintained a traditional agricultural society family structure. The entire village is full of historic and cultural significance.

One could say that it is a live village museum. Currently the Jiang Family Historic House includes over 20 households. The more than 130 houses reflect many different architectural styles, including mud-cornered houses, brick houses, iron-sheet houses, concrete houses, and bamboo-weaved houses.

Some houses have been renovated, and while some are more recent, they are outnumbered by those that have over 100 years of history.

In front of the houses is a moon-shaped lotus-pond, preserving a style that dates back over 200 years. In the past, it provided essential water storage for the farming families.
