New Scenery Postmark - The Li Family Compound in Luzhou

First built in 1857 and renovated in 1903, this compound has three courtyards and several side wings. It is representative of large traditional rural dwellings in northern Taiwan. The Li Family Compound has the simple, solid style of a farmer’s home and the stately spirit of a residence of an important official or member of the gentry. It is a historical abode with a strong cultural flavor.
