It was built in the 16th year of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1751) and was rebuilt in the 17th year of Guangxu of the Qing Dynasty. According to legend, Liao Gang, the distant ancestor of the Liao family, and his four sons served as high-ranking officials in the Northern Song Dynasty. Each paid 2,000 shi each, combined with 10,000 shi. Later generations named the ancestral hall Liao Wanshitang as a memorial.
Liu Man Shek Tong Church was opened as Fengxi Primary School in 1932, and it was moved to a new site in Waidong (Jockey Club Road, Sheung Shui) in 1974.
