Zuoying was the seat of the Wan Nian County government for Jheng Chenggong during the Ming Dynasty. Local settlements developed early， leaving many historical residences and buildings in the area. Due to modern developments， steel and concrete buildings have replaced many of these residences. However， there is an old estate near Jhioucheng Elementary School， which has a road that runs right through it. Conservation efforts from the City Government have retained the cross-section of the building， so tourists and residents can appreciate the finer features of Taiwan's traditional architecture. There are also many other old buildings， which are representative of different times gone by. The architect's descendants still preserve and maintain collections of cultural artifacts to honor the memory of their ancestors. These include the Hsui Family Historical Residence on Buho Street in Zuoying， as well as the Ceng， Hsieh， Huang， and Chen Families' Historical Residences located near Bizihtou Street. Visitors must see these important landmarks in Zuoying.
