Iconic Building of Battle of Guningtou

Introduction

Beishan Old Western-style house was established in 1928 by three brothers: Li Jinyu, Li Yanya, and Li Tianzu, from Guningtou. After running a successful coconut export business in Manila, the Philippines, the Li brothers returned to their hometown in Beishan to build the western-style grand house with two courtyards and annexes.

Situated at a higher strategic position, the house has great views and overlooks the entire village. During the Battle of Guningtou, it was occupied by the communist troops and became a command post. After going through a series of fierce shootouts and bombings, it is unquestionably proof of Kinmen’s past as a battle frontier. Beishan Old Western-style house
Nowadays you can still see the collapsed rooftops and numerous bullet holes; yet, these do not affect the exquisiteness of the western-style building. The inside of the building has now been transformed into a hostel, providing tourists with comfortable accommodation. The traces of the ruthless wars on the building will make you feel as if you could still hear the sound of bombs exploding.

    The PRC command post during Guningtou Assault

    3 2018-09

    In October 1949, the PRC Red Army crossed the ocean with two hundreds some wooden boats to assault Kinmen. This house was occupied as the command post back then. It was kept as the original as historic site of Guningtou assault. The bullets holes were covered all over the building, thus you can imagine how intense the fight was back then.
