Overview

With its ornate roofs and massive granite columns, the Tan Yeok Nee Mansion is one of the very few remaining traditional south Chinese houses in Singapore. It was built in 1885 by a wealthy Teochew pepper merchant, using granite columns imported from south China. It was restored after World War Two by the Salvation Army, then using it as its headquarters. Designated a national monument, the mansion is now home to the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business.
