Directions: N/A

Cheang Hong Lim owned a private fire-brigade which fought fires in the Town. In 1875, he contributed liberally to build a free school for boys of all ages and creeds to study at the Telok Ayer Grammar School at Cheang Wan Seng Place. He also donated $3,000 to convert the space in front of the old Central Police Station (now the Kreta Ayer Neighbourhood Police Post) into a public garden – the present Hong Lim Green, and Hong Lim Park or Speaker’s Corner.

Interesting to note his official Qing Dynasty Imperial Title which is First Ranking Official.
