What is the history of Ann Siang Hill and Club Street

Located in Chinatown, Ann Siang Hill is a historically significant spot to visit in Singapore. 

Club Street and Ann Siang Road are two famous one-way roads in Ann Siang Hill where people flock to visit the tastefully decorated shops, coffee houses, restaurants, and bars lining the streets.

Both Ann Siang Hill and Club Street are known for the elegantly restored shophouses that line them. The area is a mix of shops and residential buildings, reflecting the Chinese and Western architectural influences from Singapore’s Colonial Era. 

Ann Siang Hill

Ann Siang Hill was first named Scott’s Hill, after its first owner, Charles Scott bought the land to start a nutmeg and clove plantation. Ownership was then passed on to John Gemmill, who renamed it Gemmill’s Hill.

By 1894, a prominent Chinese businessman named Chia Ann Siang bought the land and named it Ann Siang Hill. During the 19th and 20th centuries, Ann Siang Hill was a bustling business centre for Chinese immigrants in Singapore. 

The locals called Ann Siang Hill qing shan ting and regularly visited the area’s abundant remittance houses to send money and letters to family members in China. 

Fun Fact: At the foot of Ann Siang Hill was a Cantonese burial site, one of the oldest Chinese burial spots in Singapore, before it was closed down in 1867. Part of the graveyard was exhumed and renovated into the Telok Ayer reclamation project in 1907.

Club Street

Club Street sits parallel to Ann Siang Hill and is named after its reputation as a social club hub for Chinese immigrants in the 19th century. 

The presence of exclusive social clubs, such as the Chinese Weekly Entertainment Kee Lam Club, Chui Lan Teng Club, and the Ee Hoe Hean Club, established the street’s reputation as a meeting point for the early Singapore elite in the 19th and 20th centuries. 

Today, Club Street is known for its nightclubs, boutiques, and vibrant street life against a backdrop of well-preserved Colonial shophouses.

Fun Fact: The large gateway that sits on the entrance of Club Street from Upper Cross Street was referred to as tua man lai by the Chinese settlers, meaning “big gate.”
