Tiancizhuang, formerly known as Jiangjiaxiang, used to be the villa of a lord during the Five Dynasties. Later in Song Dynasty, the villa was bestowed to a General by the emperor, and thus its name was changed into Tiancizhaung. In the Guangxu Period of Qing Dynasty, missionaries of American Christian Methodist Episcopal Church preached at the place. They painstakingly built up the St. John's Church, Soochow University, Soochow hospitals and other institutes. In the years of Republic of China, when western-style buildings sprung up and celebrities gathered, a number of missionaries, doctors, professors, and scholars have come to live here, bringing to Suzhou many new ideas and rich cultural backgrounds. Tiancizhuang became the birthplace of modern civilization in Suzhou. After the liberation, western missionaries gradually evacuated and the influence of Christianity gradually faded out. However, because of the existence of Jiangsu Normal College (now known as Soochow University) and Soochow Hospital (now known as Suzhou First People's Hospital), it still has influence on the aspects of cultural, education and medical health in Suzhou.
