This spot is mostly unknown to explorers, somehow this village hasn’t been visiting a lot. The Jianguo 1st Village for military veterans is located in Huwei, Yunlin, Taiwan and it is abandoned now. It was also know as the “Veteran’s Village”. Taiwan was a Japanese colony at that time, so Huwei had a Japanese military community area. After the war, the place returned to Taiwan, and the Taiwanese Air Force created a village for veterans and their families. Once, Jianguo had four villages. Now, the 1st and 2nd village is almost abandoned, though some of its area is still used by farmers who use it as farmland. The 3rd village had an elementary school. The 4th one has disappeared without a trace. You still can find Taiwanese architecture and get a clue how people lived here a few years ago.
We left the Minxiong Haunted House and headed to Huwei. The village has one main road, and there are many abandoned Taiwan-style houses along the road. In the field, Japanese governance battle site remains, Air-raid shelters and Flak Towers still stand. The Jianguo 1st Village has many dogs. It was quite easy to meet dogs in the village while exploring. But It looked a bit strange that most of these dogs were tied to the yard of abandoned houses in the village. Who has kept them? I was fun exploring around Jianguo 1st Village even better Jianguo 2st Village. I’ll show you some Jianguo 2st Village next time!
