"🏡 Anfeng Town, under the jurisdiction of Dongtai City, Jiangsu Province, is a famous historical and cultural town in China. It was built in the Kaiyuan period of the Tang Dynasty (713 AD) and is located on the bank of the Fangong Dike built by Fan Zhongyan, a famous figure in the Song Dynasty. It is the hometown of Wang Gen, a philosopher in the Ming Dynasty and founder of the Taizhou School, and Wu Jiaji, a commoner poet in the Qing Dynasty. 🏡 According to the test, Anfeng was originally named Dongtao, and the land is close to the sea. It is often attacked by sea waves, which makes the place restless and the people don’t have a living. In the fifth year of Renzong Tiansheng in the Northern Song Dynasty (1027), Xixi Salt Warehouse Supervisor Fan Zhongyan led the people's husband to repair the sea wall to block the tide, and then changed his name to Anfeng. "An" means living and working in peace and contentment, and "abundant" sends the wish of abundant clothing and food. And spread the spirit of "worry and worry about the world first, and joy and happiness after the world" into the hearts of Anfeng people. 🏡 Anfeng culture: As early as 500 years ago, the southeast area of my country advocated "the family has the book of Wang, and the people pass on the study of Anfeng". "Wang Family"-Ming Dynasty philosopher Wang Gen who was born as a salt citizen, "Anfeng"-Wang Gen's hometown, a thousand-year-old town in the Tongyu cultural belt of northern Jiangsu, "Anfeng School"-proposed by Wang Gen The simple materialism propositions of "people's daily use is the way", "people's daily use is the foundation" The time relationship has not been explored in the former residences of these celebrities and local mansions. Only walked this "seven miles of ancient long street." 🏡Anfeng Ancient Street: From Taiping Shopping Mall to Beiyu Street and Nanshiqiao Street by the Anshi River in the south, it is 500 meters long and 4.5 meters wide. It is a stone road from Taiping Shopping Center to Kaiyan Alley. There is a brick road from the south to the Anshi River, and the shops on both sides of the street are Qing-style buildings. Bao's Building, Wu's Ancestral Hall and Yuan Chengye's former residence are among them. Walking around at noon on weekdays, only two groups of tourist groups were encountered, and the long street was empty. 🏡 There is a folk gossip: It is said that Yancheng is a salt-producing land. Fujia merchants are all engaged in business in Yancheng, but they all go to Yangzhou to buy properties. Therefore, Yancheng has been relatively poor while Yangzhou is relatively rich; Dongtai is between the two cities Merchants often settled here to rest. Over time, Yangzhou City is home to the merchants, who often live with children in the main room. Set up a small home here and live in the outer room. Of course, this is just gossip and should not be taken seriously. 🏡 However, if you are driving back from Yancheng to Shanghai, you might as well use this as a rest stop and go down 5 kilometers at high speed to see the town for a casual meal. It is also very good. There is also a "Xixi Ancient Town" nearby, which uses the cultural concept of "Dong Yong and the Seven Fairies", but there is still content here in terms of true historical accumulation."
