This Japanese style building, established in 1932, had 4 lives. It was the mansion of the Sub-Prefect in Japanese occupation period, and came its best time as the Gaoan clinic; it was later bought by XinHong Church and became the spiritual formation hall for travelers. It took 15 years for the Church to repay the debt. After lasting damage caused by typhoons, this old house gradually deteriorated and decayed. To reconstruct and reuse damaged old buildings, XinHong Church started the ‘XinHong Church Historical Houses Dream Building Project in 2016.
Now it is renovated as the Harbor View Second-Hand Bookstore, We hope that this historical building serves not only as a reminder of the political, economic, medical and religious development of this place, but also continues its story here.
