The meaning of Ming Dynasty Street is exactly that of an "ancient street left over from the Ming Dynasty to this day."  It's more than 600 years old and is Kinmen's oldest street. Entering from the northern gates, it's only a few hundred meters long. Nowadays, the street still retains Ming Dynasty shops, traditional Minnan courtyard houses, and even battlefield air-raid shelters. It's easy to imagine its prosperity back then. In addition to being a major communicative hub, this place was also important for agriculture, fisheries, and other livelihood goods. To better suit the sale of goods, the streets were designed to accomodate the width of handcarts and are paved with stone slabs. Now this place is a piece of history for Kinmen. On the old street, there's a couple of old shopfronts, with 3 designated as themed exhibition halls. There's the "Ming Old Street Story Hall", "Huang Tianyou Memorial Hall", and "Jiuxiang Cultural Experience Hall". The Ming Old Street Story Hall displays Kinmen's history and the life of the ordinary people. The Jiuxiang Cultural Experience Hall is where tourists may better understand Kinmen's wine industry, with its characteristic sorghum wine. The Huang Tianyou Memorial Hall displays the life of Dr. Huang Tianyou.
