Introduction: Heritage of Mei Ho House
Heritage of Mei Ho House (HMHH) museum is the first privately-run museum of Hong Kong Housing established and operated by the Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association. Mei Ho House, Mei Ho House originated from a devastating blaze that broke out in 1953 (later known as “Shek Kip Mei Fire”).
The fire caused nearly 58,000 people homeless. In order to provide long term housing to the large number of fire victims, the government built the first batch of resettlement blocks (Block A to H) on the site of the fire. The eight six-storey resettlement blocks, which included Mei Ho House, were completed in 1954.
Mei Ho House marked the beginning of Hong Kong’s public housing policies, making it an ideal site for setting up a museum focusing on the history of the local community and the evolution of public housing and folk life.
