In 1982, careful villagers found a plant grown on the top of the useless chimney, thought at that time it was the grass, later, the `grass` grew biger and biger, villagers found that it was the little banyan, they estimated bird took the seed to the chimney top, the seed took root and grew up slowly unexpectedly.

Now, the very large branches and leaves cover the chimney top entirely, it seems one enormous `chimney umbrella`, local villagers hope to develop the `Banyan in Chimney` into a scenic spot, attract visitors.

This house and chimney originally was a starch mill, after the mill went bankrupt and stopped production in 1980, only the brick house and chimney stay.
