Tjong A Fie Mansion Received the USA AFCP Grant in 2013

Quoted from the Consulate of United States of America in Medan Facebook page:

"August 3, 2014

Tjong A Fie (TAF) Mansion adalah ikon bersejarah di Medan, Sumatera Utara. Terletak di pusat kota Medan, mansion ini merupakan tujuan wisata yang terkemuka dan merupakan peninggalan bangunan Peranakan termegah yang ada di Indonesia. Saat ini ditangani oleh keturunan Tjong A Fie yaitu Bapak Fon Prawira dan merupakan contoh atas keberagaman budaya yang merangkai kota Medan. 

Jumat lalu, Konsul A.S. Robert Ewing mengunjungi TAF Mansion dan mendengarkan langsung sejarah yang mengesankan serta kisah hidup Tjong A Fie dari Bapak Fon. Pemerintah Amerika Serikat, Kedutaan A.S. di Jakarta dan Konsulat A.S. di Medan bangga untuk dapat mendukung preservasi situs budaya bersejarah kota Medan, Tjong A Fie Mansion, melalui dana hibah yang diberikan melalui The Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP).

Tjong A Fie Mansion is an historical jewel in Medan, North Sumatra. Located in downtown Medan, it’s a prominent tourist landmark and one of the most opulent examples of building representing Peranakan culture in Indonesia. It is managed by a decedent of Tjong A Fie, Mr. Fon Prawira and is an exemplar of the diversity of cultures that make up Medan.

Last Friday, U.S. Consul Robert Ewing visited the Mansion. He learned of the fascinating history directly from Mr. Prawira,. The United States Government, The U.S Embassy in Jakarta, and the U.S. Consulate in Medan are proud to assist in the preservation of Medan’s Iconic Cultural Heritage site, the Tjong A Fie Mansion, via a grant awarded to the Mansion by The Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP)."

Roof Restoration

 

In 2013, the AFCP Funds have funded the restoration of the worst-damaged part of the roof on Tjong A Fie Mansion (about one third of the total roof area.)

The new roof tiles were sourced from artisans in Java.
