This week, we examine the Chiang Kai-shek Shilin Residence, the place where, from 1950 to his death in 1975, one of the main figures in modern Taiwan’s history spent his days. Though Chiang Kai-shek is a controversial figure who continues to divide Taiwan today, his old Shilin Residence serves to make a historical figure and his actions more "real" to visitors.
