Former United States Consulate (Mei Guo Ling Shi Guan Jiu Zhi 美国领事馆旧址)

The American government obtained the land for this sweeping brick property, near the [San Qiu Tian tourist ferry port], after negotiations with the Qing Dynasty government in 1871 but did not build its consulate until 1893. The former consulate was destroyed in a fire in 1904 and the existing consulate was built in 1930 in the American Classical Revival style by using red bricks imported from the United States. The building is currently privately rented, and the interior cannot be visited, but the gardens and sprawling mansion are visible from the street by the San Qiu Tian ferry.

早在1871年,美国政府在与清朝政府谈判后就拿到了这块土地,但直到1893年才建立了美国领事馆。前美国领事馆在1904年的一场大火中被烧毁了,而后在1930年建立了目前我们看到的美国古典复兴风格的领事馆。
