Funan Brick Kiln

Reasons for registration:
A. The kiln was built in 1966, 40 years ago from now. It was a living proof marking the development of brick kiln industry along with the cities in eastern Taiwan. The remained construction provides a glimpse of its original structure and scale as an item of regional industry.
B. The kiln is the only Hoffmann kiln left in the eastern Taiwan. The remained construction can still illustrate the features of Hoffmann kiln, which makes it worth preserving.
C. The chimney was installed with lightning conductor in 1966 and its walls were solid and thick, standing on the border between Hualien and Taitung.
D. The underground tunnel between the chimney and the brick kiln may be developed to serve for educational purpose.
