    Shen Congwen's former residence is located in Zhongying Street, Fenghuang Ancient City, Guizhou Province. On December 28, 1902, Mr. Shen Congwen was born in this typical courtyard of ancient Xiangxi. The courtyard was built after Shen Congwen's grandfather Shen Hongfu (formerly governor of Guizhou Province in the Qing Dynasty) purchased the old residence and demolished it in 1866. It is a firebrick-sealed one-storey building. The courtyard is divided into two parts, one is a patio paved with square red stones, the other is a chamber on both sides, with a total of 11 rooms in size. The building is a bucket-through wooden structure with one bucket and one eye closure wall. Horsehead wall decoration of the aotou, carved doors and windows, small chic, antique. Mr. Shen Congwen spent his childhood and adolescence here. He left home at the age of 15 to join the army and tossed around in Western Hunan. At the age of 20, he left Western Hunan and began his life of learning and writing. He published literary works such as Border Town, Sanji of Hunan Travel, Autobiography of Congwen and so on. It can be seen that the life of the ancient city of Phoenix and the local customs of Western Hunan are the important sources of Mr. Shen Congwen's creation. It is no exaggeration to say that the world knows Phoenix and understands Phoenix from Shen Congwen.

    The scenic spot is good. Let's see, the commercialization here is a little serious. But the scenery on both sides of the Tuojiang River is good, and the hanging-feet buildings are very beautiful. There are many inns. It's better to book in advance for holidays. In the evening, you can see the performance of the border city, take pictures of the night scenes on both sides of the Tuojiang River, and go to bars to have sex.

    Phoenix is heading for China and the world stage because of Shen Lao's Border Town and Xiangxi Past Stories. I know Shen Lao passed through my hometown from junior high school. I want to go to my hometown after graduation from high school. However, it is impossible for Shanliwa to think of such a good thing as traveling. Last month, her dream came true. She went to Phoenix, visited Shen Lao's former residence, and the tickets for Shen Lao's former residence can be single.

    Shen Congwen's former residence is also a scenic spot of Phoenix, how to say! After all, the legends of Phoenix spread all over the country are mostly about Shen Congwen. His existence adds mystery to the Phoenix in Western Hunan. It's a living yard. The scenery can not be said, more is the cultural color in it.

    Shen Congwen's former residence is not near the Tuojiang River. You can see it a little bit from the Wind and Rain Tower of Hongqiao. Arrived here at noon, unexpectedly a sea of people, tour guides with super-many teams, lively, bustling. Shen Congwen's former residence is still worth seeing. The former residence has a large area. It takes about an hour to look carefully.

    I think the most important place of Phoenix is Shen Congwen's former residence. Without Mr. Shen Congwen, there would be no border city. What about Phoenix? Mr. Wen's life, the only thing that can not be abandoned is his hometown. When he was a child, he read his article. A soldier either died in battle or returned to his hometown. He also associates with Mr. Wen's exuberance in the first half of his life. He also misses his hometown on his death and can't bear tears. Walking in the former residence, I saw the place where my husband grew up. Now, it has turned into soil, and I am deeply moved.

    Mr. Shen Congwen was born in a typical southern quadrangle on Zhongying Street in the ancient city of Phoenix. The courtyard was built after Shen Congwen's grandfather Shen Hongfu (formerly governor of Guizhou Province in the Qing Dynasty) purchased and demolished an old residence in Tongzhi for five years (1866). The courtyard is small and chic with carved doors and windows. Shen Congwen's former residence was listed as a key cultural relic protection unit of the provincial people's government in 1991. The former residence now displays Shen Lao's ink, manuscripts, relics and remains, which has become one of the most attractive cultural landscapes of Phoenix. On May 25, 2006, Shen Congwen's former residence in Fenghuang County, Hunan Province was approved by the State Council to be listed in the Sixth Batch of national key cultural relics protection units.

    Mr. Shen Congwen, a literary giant, has such a description of Phoenix as "If you look for Phoenix from an older map a hundred years ago, you can find a small spot named "Zhenpole" in a very remote corner of northern Guizhou, Eastern Sichuan (now southeastern Chongqing) and Western Hunan, where, like other small spots, there should be a city, in fact, where three or five thousand people have settled down" This is Fengfeng. The ancient city of Huang.
