摘要: 
Eight famous trade associations of Lukang exemplified the heyday of Lukang during the Qing Dynasty. Nowadays, many traditional sites of these trading companies are still located on Chung Shan Road and Chin Sheng Lane. For example, Yilou and Shihyilou are the original shops of the Qing-Chang Hang, the most powerful branch under the Hsia Trade Association during the Dau-Kuang period of the Qing Dynasty. Ke-Chuan Chen, the founder of the Qing-Chang Hang, had seven sons, one of which was the father of the owner of Shihyilou, Chi Chen. Due to the prosperity of his family, Chi Chen donated some money in order to get a status as five Pin in the class of gentry, changing himself from a businessman to a gentry. Being erudite in Han studies and having a liking for Shih Su's works of literature, Chi Chen associated wi th many scholars of the time. Shou-Hsing Tsai, Chia-Shu Fang, Tiao-Keng Shih, Yi-Chi Huang, and Chi-Sheng Hung had given Chi Chen either their pieces of calligraphy or their poems as presents. However, despite his abundant knowledge, he could not bring his talent into full play because of Taiping Heavenly Kingdom and Dai Chao Chun uprising. After the Cession of Taiwan in 1895, Chi Chen's descendants did not move back to China, staying in Taiwan to protect their family property. Chi Chen's third son, Chih-Fen, bought a public position and became colonial government's assistant after the dynastic change. In addition, Chih-Fen and his relatives, Huai-Cheng Chen and Pei-Hsu Chen, made their family honor, Qing-Chang, thrive again. That Shihyilou became a place where men of letters tended to enjoy literature together was attributed to Chi Chen and his offspring's efforts. Therefore, it showed that Chen's family's contribution to cultural popularization was indispensable. Nonetheless, in order to maintain the image of Chen's family's elegance and prosperity, they were faced with some financial difficulties, so they sold Shihyilou to other relatives. Although Chen's family was not as wealthy as before, Chi Chen's descendants still made efforts to protect historic monuments after World War II, such as rebuilding Paomalou, contributing to cultural development. Also, they donated Gufenglou as well as some Chen family's relics when Gu family constructed Lukang Folk Arts Museum. This article will explore the history of Chi Chen and his descendants, demonstrating the transformation of Lukang's society and economy by making a comprehensive survey of Chen's family's rise and decline, and see Lukang's change from economy to culture.

「鹿港八郊」象徵清朝曾有的繁華歲月,今中山路至金盛巷仍保留許多郊商舊址,如意樓與十宜樓為廈郊「慶昌行」祖厝。「慶昌行」為道光年間廈郊之首,於嘉慶年間由陳克勸所創。克勸生有七子,十宜樓的主人陳祈,為大房植柳之子、克勸之孫,受祖業庇蔭,捐貲至五品官,從商販之家兼為士紳家族;其漢學修養佳,喜愛蘇軾作品,與文人往來密切,蔡壽星、方家澍、施調賡、黃貽楫、洪棄生曾贈其墨寶或詩作,但受太平天國及戴潮春事件影響,欲振乏力,無法發揮所長。乙未割臺後,陳祈子輩未返回中國,而選擇留臺護產;改朝換代後,其三子質芬以財力任公職,成為殖民政府協力者,與七房陳懷澄、陳培煦父子共創家族再興。而十宜樓作為陳家重要的產業,從陳祈至子質芬、藻雲,孫子敏,乃至七房的懷澄,皆使其成為文人吟詩作樂的場所,可說明慶昌陳家在文化推展的貢獻。然而,為維持「九曲巷中風不到,十宜樓上士閒吟」的形象,財力拮据,故將十宜樓一半屋厝賣給莊再添。戰後,陳家財力已不如從前,不過族人仍盡力貢獻文化事業,自費整修跑馬樓保留古蹟,並在辜家成立鹿港民俗文物館時,捐獻古風樓並借展陳家文物於內。本文將探討十宜樓主人陳祈及其後代的歷史,藉由該家族史的興衰,來反映家族與地域社會發展的關聯性,進而理解從經濟鹿港轉化到文化鹿港的過程。
