Introduction: The name “Heart Village” comes from the Chinese Zhongxin Village (中心里).

It was a medical military village containing a public hot spring bathhouse.

The village and its buildings remain, divided by a wall.

The development of the National Military Hospital and Heart Village are closely intertwined.

The buildings have been here since the Japanese colonial period, over 100 years.

They include military lodgings left behind by the Japanese, structures built by the women’s federation, and structures built by military village residents.

Over the years, 

military dependents have taken root and blossomed here.

The military village is a stabilizing force.

For many it represents home.

We trace the past through images and photographs

with A Window in Time: Remembering Heart Village, A Visual Exhibition,

freezing time to capture eternity.

The exhibition covers a wide scope, including hospital scenes and scenes of military village life, daily routines and life stories.

Here, every image is a treasured story of the military village.

They represent the stories of Beitou and of Taiwan.
