The building complex of the Ming and Qing dynasties in Laosicheng Tusi Sites, Yongshun County, consists of three buildings, Zhushidian, Huangjingtai, and Yuhuangge. About the history of the building complex and the three buildings, different explanations are given by the folklore experts, archaeologists and historians. By analyzing these explanations, together with the reconversion research on the Main Hall in Baoguo Temple (Ningbo) by the Research Institute of Architecture in the Southeast University, this paper holds that an architectural research based on structure styles and tectonic details is necessary for ascertaining the history of this building complex, as well as for concluding the regional characteristics and technical origins of the building complex.

Key words: Laosicheng Tusi Sites, patriarch temple complex, ancient wooden building, history research
