this huge house and garden started in late ming dynasty, after chen yuanlong became the prime mister in later qing dynasty, the compound was expanded and uplifted to match the official's status. the remaining parts of the compound still occupied 4700+sqm with 1100sqm in buildings. a very example of ancient Chinese garden homes with extensive woodworks, rocks and plants of the rich and the powerful.

local folklore was created to make believe that this chen gelao was indeed the birth father of emperor Qianlong who was switched at birth with a royal daughter. the whole thing was based on the fact that Qianlong indeed was very fond of this area and showed special favor to the chen family.
