Feng's House
Feng's House of the Stone Buddha Temple is now located in Sanxing Administrative Village, Fengqiao Town, Nanhu District, Jiaxing City, which is in west the shore of the former Yangmiaotang Pool of Stone Buddha Temple's Natural Village and in the north of Fengyu Road, covering more than 2 thousand square meters. It consists of three residences in one west-south row. The western residence is an independent single-storey house which was built before the Emperor Tongzhi's Reign of Qing Dynasty; the middle one consists of two houses in south-north direction, with the symmetric central axis. The 7-meter high southern house with two halls is 7 meters' away from the northern house, built during the Emperor Tongzhi's Reign of Qing Dynasty, which is used as a granary and is called main hall by local people. The eastern one consists of three halls; the first two halls are two-storey buildings while the third hall is the main hall. There is a stone dock in the east of the Yangmiaotang, on which there are two small houses built by local person Feng Zhongqing in the third or fourth year of Republic of China.

 
The two houses in the west are South-China style, while the eastern three-hall house that facing the river has the character of Huizhou construction. It is constructed by bricks, wood and stones with wooden structure and large beams. The girder and its supporters are carved with patterns while the gate is covered with large brick carving. In the middle yard, the house heads walls stand opposite to each other with frescoes of Qing Dynasty on them.
 

The architectural style of ancient Fengs' Abode, which combines Huizhou style with traditional south-China style, is rarely found in the traditional residence in Jiaxing. In the sense of architect and art, it is highly valued in research area. Furthermore, it also reflects the cultural communication between two places in the certain historical period indicating that the Stone Buddha Temple is a prosperous communication center of economy and culture in that very years.
