On January 10, the Exhibition on Modern History of Changsha Customs at the Orange Isle scenic spot, officially opens to the public for free. It is located inside the Changsha Customs Taxation Department mansion, which was built in 1906. The exhibition hall will become another new historical and cultural landscape on the Orange Isle.
The Changsha Customs Taxation Department mansion is the former office and residence house of the Changsha Customs Taxation Department during the late Qing dynasty (1616—1912). It is the oldest existing historical building on the Orange Isle; and the only surviving architectural relic relating to the opening of Changsha Port and Changsha Customs. The century-long mansion has witnessed China’s great suffering in the past, and a striving and thriving new era.
