New Scenery Postmark - Chin Kuang Fu House

Chin Kuang Fu was an exceptional and unusal case of Hokkien and Hakka cooperation in Taiwan's pioneer industries, and also the last pioneer enterprise in Hsinchu's mountain region. Although this first rank historical site, which is over 160 years old, looks nothing special, and its interior is dilapidated and bleak, it is a record of the history of development in the mountains of Hsinchu between Hokkien and Hakka forebears, and its structure also combines architectural motifs of both Fujian and Hakka-style old buildings and the simple yet powerful architectural style of pioneer society.
