History of Hometown — Excerpt from Fuchu from the Viewpoint of Archaeological Sites and Cultural Properties
The former Ashina-gun government office building was used as an office for local agencies in the prefecture, but in 51, the former Ashina-gun government office building was to be demolished due to the widening of the road.Citizens who regret that the pseudo-Western-style building of the former Fuchu Junior High School (currently Fuchu High School) school building has just been demolished and the buildings that look like the symbols of the city disappear one after another, have carried out a campaign to preserve the buildings. I did.As a result, with the support of many citizens, fundraising was collected, and it was relocated to the land created in Habucho and reused as a historical and folk museum.
