    Chung Ceong Gak, a restaurant-cum-art gallery, is a western-style, ivy-covered, red-brick building that is known to have been built in the 1910s. The tall tree standing in the courtyard, the porch stairs, the part of the Chung Geong Gak with an octagonal roof, stone fireplace, and the attic are all typical features of an old western-style house. Some people say that this is a European-style building built by a German architect, while others say that it is a bungalow-style house of the type in vogue in California, and that it was inhabited by an electrician named McClellan.
