Yin Yu Tang, A Chinese Home

Yin Yu Tang, A Chinese Home at the Peabody Essex Museum. "...Yin Yu Tang is a late Qing dynasty merchant's house that was originally located in Huizhou in southeast China. Through a cultural exchange project with Huizhou, the Peabody Essex Museum dismantled and moved the over 200-year old house to Salem, Massachusetts. The house was re-erected at the museum as part of the PEM's transformation and expansion in June 2003."
