The village, which was home to thousands of residents, lies in ruins after an overnight demolition
Hubo Village sat at the foot of Mount Qixing on the bank of the Meixi River for a thousand years. Now it sleeps deep underwater. The ancient village located in Xinchang County, Zhejiang Province has been wiped off the map alongside 27 neighboring towns by the construction of a giant dam project that displaced more than 10,000 residents. The relocation began in 2014 and lasted a year. The buildings in the village were demolished by the time the waters poured in. Farms, homes, graves, a temple, an ancestral hall, a memorial archway, a 500-meter ancient street, dozens of well-preserved houses and 16 giant camphor trees were all lost. Life continues. Villagers, who watched their hometown subsumed by the water, try to adapt to new lives in unfamiliar places. The last moments of the village have been documented through the lens of local-resident-turned-photographer Wang Xiaohong in her collection, “My Hometown Drowned By Water.”
