It was used as temporary government office for police officers in the early period of Japanese occupation. In the 7th year of Taishō era (1918), it was demolished and relocated due to the construction expansion of buildings in Taichung Prefectural Hall. It was moved to the current address as Police Officer’s Club and was reserved. Its history of relocation demonstrated the urban change from the government office settlement in Qing dynasty to prefectural hall in Japanese occupation period. It is with great reservation and architectural research values.
After a century, it is the only surviving examination hall building from Qing dynasty in our country. In 2006, it was announced as a municipal historic site.
