Ancient fire wall and low hanging house show Tujia people’s intelligence and wisdom to visitors.According to expert research, this ancient village was first built in Tang and Song Dynasties, and became flourishing in Ming and Qing Dynasties, with a history of about 2000 years. Kuzhu Village is constantly called the “throat land” of Sangzhi County, Zhangjiajie City.Over there, architecture features still have the reflection of Ming and Qing Dynasties. Different minorities live together. The people are simple, honest and unspoiled. Villagers are good at singing and dancing so that many Sangzhi folk songs are spread by singers coming from Kuzhu Village.In ancient times, water transportation is the only way to contact with outside world. Kuzhu Village had a commercial dork at that time, extremely prosperous. Stores and taverns were easily to be found there.
