Chuandixia village or Cuandixia stands in a useful location, with convenient transportation to Hebei province and Inner-Mongolia. As such, it was flooded with a stream of horses and carriages during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing dynasties (1644-1911). However, part of the village was seriously damaged during the Japanese Occupation (1937-1945) and the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), leaving parts of the village in ruins even today. Following the policy of Reform and Opening and with the development of the railway, express way and roads through the mountains, the village lost its strategic significance and quickly became deserted. Currently, there are only 14 families living here, making the totally population around 30 people. Because of this, the village is very well maintained and has become frozen in its history making this small town a “living museum” in the Beijing district.
