Visitors to Malacca can find a Malay kampung (village) that is a "living museum" of the rural way of life in the close vicinity of the town center. Kampung Morten was named after J.F. Morten, who was the Commissioner of Land in the early 1920s during the early history of the village. The site was originally a swamp by the Malacca River from which a cluster of wooden houses on stilts gradually came into being. Today, the swamp had long been paved over, and the village has become a tourist attraction.
