The Former Residence of He Wuzou, also called He Garden, is located on Wenhua Road, Xinshi Community, Siu Lam County.
The Former Residence of He Wuzou was initially called Wengai Garden. It covers an area of over 10 mu and includes the present Liantang Avenue, Sanjiao City, Xizha, etc. In the garden there are some pavilions such as Songfeng Pavilion, Xihe Pavilion, Loulanhui, Baolun Pavilion, Yugong Tower and Yuanqi Hall. According to the record of Lanxi Scenery, Songfeng Pavilion, Xihe Pavilion and Loulanhui were destroyed in Qing Dynasty when the policy of immigrating toward the coastal areas was adopted; Baolun Pavilion was destroyed when Xiu Lam fell to enemy occupation; Yugong Tower and Yuanqi Hall were dismantled after liberation; the original backyard garden had been reconstructed into Xiu Lam People¡¯s Park. The Former Residence has been left only with the first row and three bays, with the rest dismantled. Due to the disputes over the property rights, the houses were divided into small gardens for planting flowers. The present front door features granite base, black brick, and purlin roof. Under the eaves there are featherlike reliefs and brick carvings.
Preserving the typical architectural style of the official families at the end of Ming Dynasty, the Former Residence of He Wuzhou is one of the very few former residences of Ming Dynasty celebrities in Zhongshan.
