Li Hongzhang’s Former Residence
Li Hongzhang, who was born in Hefei in 1823, is known as the first dignitary to advocate an open-door policy for China. Li was in charge of both domestic and foreign affairs during the Qing Dynasty. His former home on Huaihe Road, built in typical late Qing style, is a large and well-preserved residence of a historical figure in Hefei.
