Introduction

Highlights
- This is the largest western-style house in Kinmen. 
- Wander inside to find out its interesting history and varied occupants. 
- On the 2nd floor, read stories about and see photos of various Kinmen people who left to seek a better life.

This impressive mansion is the result of one Kinmen businessman's success in Singapore in the early 1900s. Its all-white exterior, fine carvings and symmetric archways are all features that give it a western rather than Chinese look.
Chen Jing-lan Western-style House
In 1949, this building was taken over by the military for housing. It subsequently was used as a military hospital, recreation center for military personnel on leave and Kinmen Secondary School building. Today it makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos.

Jin Tang Park
Befitting the grandeur of this large western-style house is a lovely park sloping down to the sea…and in the center of it, a statue of liberty replica echoing the western ambience.

    Beautiful mansion with great view

    This mansion was built by a successful Kinmen businessman. It was used as a special guest house for soldiers during the war era. Nowadays, it’s a museum to collect a lot of successful Kinmen businessmen. For examples, back & forth letters, visa applications and some other cultural items. The view is awesome, open to ocean with fresh air.

    十分洋式的閩南建築,濃濃的老洋風,說明指示清楚

    近成功海灘,洋式閩南建築可遙想當年的氣派。建議申請導覽,可以一邊走一邊看展品和建築,再一邊聽建築與時代故事講解,更能感受金門的戰地風光與主人家對當地與對當時政府的無私貢獻。It's special Architectural style is really worth a visit. If possible, strongly recommend applying a historic narrator or guide to let you know more about the story of this beautiful building.
