As a reward for their efforts, the government granted the family the exclusive right to sell camphorwood, further expanding their economic influence in central Taiwan. The family established National Taichung First High School, the best high school in Taichung. After the KMT withdrew from Taiwan, the family continued to support the Taiwanese government and captured local influential figures. The family also exerted influence in the oligopolistic banking industry, revealing how vast the family’s wealth was. The mansion that the family built and later renovated can only be described as magnificent in comparison to other mansions of the period and to the present day.

How to get there

To get to the Wufeng Lin Family Residence and Garden, take bus No. 50 (Ubus Bus Company) from the Taichung Railway Station and get off at the K-12 Education Administration (國教署) in the center of Wufeng. A 10-minute walk along Cheng Kung Road (Cheng Kung Road) will bring you to the garden. The House of Representatives (at the time of this writing, the Senate is still under restoration) is a short walk north from the garden. Incidentally, the wonderful 921 Earthquake Museum is located 3 km south of the gardens, at the end of the same bus route. It is a clear indication of the magnitude of the earthquake that devastated the beautiful historical heritage nearby.
