Additional Information


Chen Family Courtyard is located in the Zaohe Old Town, which is a place full of good fortune. The Chen Family Courtyard was built in the Jiaqing period of the Qing Dynasty. It has a history of more than two hundred years. It is a rare large-scale ancient residential build-up in Suqian City. According to folktale, the residence was originally occupied by Ma family of Luoma Lake, known to locals as the residence of Mr. Ma. Because the man was an official in the capital for many years, the residence had been idle for a long time. It was, then, sold to Chen Yongmao, a businessman from Wucheng County, Shandong Province, who was doing business in Zaohe. And that's how the residence gained its current name.
