In the ancient town of Yangliuqing, the Shi Family Courtyard was first built in 1875, showing the characteristics of the complex of residential houses of the late Qing Dynasty. It was once claimed as the :No.1 Mansion in North China”. The Courtyard includes the Shi Family Theater, the largest opera house in North China. Today it serves as the Museum of Yangliuqing Customs, which contains a large collection of Yangliuqing New Year pictures, painted clay figurines by Zhang, brick carvings and other local handicrafts and arts, such as paper-cuts and stage properties for folk festivals.
