Residence of Ip Ting-sz
The Residence of Ip Ting-sz, which was built in around 1908, is modelled on Dr Sun Yat-sen’s residence in Cuiheng Village, Zhongshan. Mr. Ip Ting-sz (1879-1943), alias Tin-fat, was also known by his literary name Kwong-san, was the eighth generation ancestor of the Ips in Lin Ma Hang, Sha Tau Kok. He went to Thailand at an early age to work as an apprentice tailor before setting up a garment factory manufacturing military uniforms later.

According to the information from the Chinese Association in Thailand, Dr Sun Yat-sen founded the Chinese Club in Thailand (later renamed the Chinese Association in Thailand) in 1907 to rally support for his revolutionary activities among overseas Chinese. Ip Ting-sz was one of the originators and co-founders of the Chinese Association at its initial founding stage. He was later assigned to be the president of the Tong Meng Hui (Chinese Revolutionary Alliance) Siam Branch and a revolutionary newspaper. Ip was active in promoting development of the Tong Meng Hui in the territory and contributing funds for the revolutionary campaign. In 1936, Ip Ting-sz returned to Lin Ma Hang with his family, where he passed away in 1943.

The Residence of Ip Ting-sz is a three-bay, two-storey building fronted by a covered porchway with columns supporting the balcony. The building is principally constructed of grey brick and timber with a traditional pitched roof. Murals of Chinese auspicious motifs are found atop the front doors while the balcony is decorated with ceramic vase-shaped balusters, demonstrating a blend of Chinese and Western architectural features.
