Wong Ji Shi Mansion(王雞屎洋宅)
Wong Ji Shi Mansion(王雞屎洋樓) is a beautiful old house, and when it was built in 1937 it was Anping's most luxurious mansion. The house was named after its owner, Mr. Wong Ji Shi, who became rich from contracting the haulage for the Japanese Salt Co. during the Japanese Colonial Time, and had this house made, the tallest in Anping at the time. Beside the mansion there are some unique stone chairs, which were originally ballasts used by boats traveling across the Taiwan Strait. These ballasts are a common sight in Anping, and are used as stone steps, footrests, or placed in courtyards for visitors to rest on. Wong Ji Shi Mansion is still inhabited by descendants of Mr. Wong, so remember not to disturb the residents of the building.
