According to the “Xin An Xian Zhi”, an 1819 gazette, the name Pokfulam refers to a species of bird called Pok-fu (薄鳧) that was once common in the area. Pokfulam Village has existed since the early 17th century. Today, the same name refers to a much larger neighbourhood that can boast several historic buildings including the Bethanie, a cluster of properties under the Old Dairy Farm, and Douglas Castle, now the University Hall of the University of Hong Kong. One of those historic buildings, the Old Dairy Farm Senior Staff Quarters has now been revitalised as a “living” museum.
