Phan Chau Trinh was born on September 9, 1872, from Tay Loc village, now village 5, Tam Loc commune, Phu Ninh district. At the age of 29 (1900), he passed the Bachelor's exam. In 1901, he passed the deputy exam and was appointed "Victory of the Ministry of Ceremonies". In 1904, he, along with Huynh Thuc Khang and Tran Quy Cap, launched the Duy Tan movement with the principle and purpose of progress: "People aware, people improve, people develop". Towards the end of April 1908, the Duy Tan movement flourished, culminating in an outbreak of tax resistance. He was accused by the Hue court of being the initiator of the movement, so he was arrested in Hanoi, brought back to Hue, and exiled to Con Dao. At the end of 1910, he was released. After being released from prison, he went to France to work. After 14 years of operation in France, in June 1925, he returned home. In Saigon, he held two lectures on "Militaryism and Democracy", "Ethics and Ethics of East and West" which resonated greatly with patriots and the masses. After a serious illness, at 9:30 pm on March 24, 1926, he took his last breath in the endless mourning of his compatriots across the country.

The house is not only valuable in terms of architecture with many beautiful carvings, but also a place to display souvenirs and pictures about the life and revolutionary career of Phan Chau Trinh.
