Anxian Hall (An Xian Lou 安献楼)

The American Seventh-day Adventist missionary B.L.Anderson came to Kulangsu in 1906. He bought a large tract of land in “Wugepai” to build a school and set up farms and dairies to provide work-study programs for students. Anderson used the profits from farms and dairies, and funds donated by Americans in the late 1920s, to buy land on Jishan road, where in 1934 he built a three-storey granite “Girls’ school”. In memory of Anderson, the building is also named “Anxian Hall”. Xiamen Music School was using it from 1990-1996.

美国基督教安息日会的安礼逊于1906年来到鼓浪屿,当时他买下了一大块地来建立学校、农场和奶牛养殖场,为学生们提供了一个半工半读的机会。安礼逊用农场和养殖场赚来的和美国人捐助的资金,于1934年,在鸡山路建立了一所三层楼的“女子”学校。为了纪念安礼逊,这栋楼被取名为“安献楼”。厦门音乐学校建于此地,1990-1996在此办学。
