During the twenty-eighth year of the Guangxu reign of the Qing Dynasty (1902 AD), Yan Guoxin, the wealthiest person in Mudu, purchased “Duan Yuan” and hired the renowned craftsman Yao Chengzu from Xiangshan Gang to lead a team of skilled workers for renovation. While preserving the original architecture, they designed a four-season garden layout, symbolizing the transmission of good Feng Shui from generation to generation. The garden was renamed “Xian Yuan”, commonly known as the “Yan’s Garden” among the locals.
