  • Through the natural features of the area, the building was built on a hill and first served as a private residence. In the 1870s and 1880s, it was rebuilt and became a three-story.

    That building, which we can see today dates from the year 1917. It was opened after major repairs, as a result of which the building was granite neo-classical style.

    This building throughout its "life" changed a lot of owners. Here lived the first governor of Hong Kong, Sir Henry Potinger, his successor, John Francis Davis, and from 1843 to 1846 there was the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. Also there is a lot of successive trading companies, as well as HSBC bank and the Russian consulate.

    In 1915 it acquired the building of the French Mission Society, which ordered overhaul, during which the chapel crowned with a dome and the facade was lined with red brick. It opened in 1917 and became known as the "French Mission Building ". In 1953 it was sold back to the Hong Kong government.
