Former site of American School in Tainan City transformed into new marketplace

文字-A A +A

The American School in Tainan City's North District has been abandoned for 45 years. The community residents decided to preserve the old site and renovate the sidewalks around the base to create a pedestrian-friendly space. In addition, an "American" market was established, inviting regional revitalization workers from Tainan, entrepreneurial youth, local youth farmers, and residents to help infuse creativity into the community.

 

Tainan American School was once a dormitory area for the U.S. Army Advisory Corps and a school. The American school brought Western education to Tainan, and American life has since been integrated into the local culture. The market was named as "American" with the aim of helping people to discover the local history and to pass on the heritage of local life from the former Tainan American school. In addition, the market also hopes to realize "city and village join hands, young and old create together," with the aim of further increasing the livability of Tainan North District and rekindling historical memories.

台南美國學校舊址煥然一新 青銀共創特色市集

  位於台南市北區的美國學校,荒廢45年,社區居民決定保留舊址改建綠地,並同步翻修基地外圍人行道,營造友善行人空間。並成立「阿嬤妳看」(American)特色市集,邀請臺南地方創生夥伴、創業青年、地方青農、在地住民共同參與,作為地方創生的一環。

  台南美國學校曾是美軍顧問團宿舍區,也是美軍協防臺灣時所建立的學校。美國學校將西方教育帶入臺南,美式生活從此融入府城文化;「阿嬤妳看」也隱含著為原臺南美國學校舊址找回歷史與地方生命之傳承,並在臺南都市裡好好保留著的想望。市集也盼能實現「城鄕攜手、青銀共創」,讓台南北區成為宜居又能含納歷史記憶的特色城鎮。
