Located in Kim Lien commune of Nam Dan district, Nghe An province, in central Vietnam, Sen Village is the place where President Ho Chi Minh spent his childhood. In the village, there is a 5-room wooden house with thatched roofs owned by Nguyen Sinh Sac, President Ho’s father. This is the house where President Ho lived from 1901 to 1906.

The signpost reads: The house of Phó bảng Nguyen Sinh Sac, the father of President Ho Chi Minh. (Phó bảng was an academic degree granted to those who passed exams under the Nguyen Dynasty from 1829 to 1919).

Nguyen Sinh Sac passed the Confusion examination in 1894 and gained the tittle Phó bảng - a second-rank position seven years later.

Proud to have the first person accredited by the Hue royal court, Sen villagers erected a house for Nguyen Sinh Sac to recognize his contribution to the locality. The house was built on a total area of approximately 2,500 m2, including a garden.

Hearing of President Ho’s death, Nguyen Cong Phi, a worker of Vinh mechanical factory, portrayed the late President on the wreckage of US aircraft shot down by soldiers and people of Vinh city. The portrait was used in President Ho’s memorial service in Nghe An province from September 4-9, 1969.
