Its original name was Zixia Villa and was the private properties of a local family, also called Shuixiang Garden(水香园, the Garden of Water Fragrance), but was destroyed by warfare during the region of Emperor Xianfeng (1851-1861). Since 1984, more than 10 typical but difficult-preserved buildings of Ming Dynasty were dismantled, and they mostly from Zheng Village, Xu Village, Qiankou Village and Xixi South Village, and all were restored in Qiankou in accordance with its original looks in 1994.
