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.
