The Chen family in Kaohsiung is one of the five most influential families in Taiwan. Their most representative figure is Chen Jhong-he, who laid the foundation for his family’s prosperity. In 1925, Chen Jhong-he finished building a two-storey mansion in Linyaliao; its architecture stands prominent among the traditional compounds. The luxurious mansion features a western architectural design, with an imitation brick exterior, arched columns and classic gables. The interior is a fusion of traditional residential layout and decor, demonstrating the eclectic style of Minyang Fusion Architecture commonly seen in affluent homes at the time. Japanese black tiled hipped roofs and ox-eye windows emphasize the building’s majestic appearance. The mansion was abandoned after the war, and was only refurbished and renamed the Chen Jhong-he Memorial Hall in 1996. The hall includes the main building, pond, bridge and surrounding gardens, and preserves the memory of one of Kaohsiung’s most influential tycoons.
