In 1968 the residents of the Kazura District decided to move out of the village and tried to sell their Gassho style houses. Concerned that the houses would be relocated elsewhere or destroyed resulting in a loss of their important cultural value, Shirakawa Village provided a site where the houses could be collectively relocated and opened as a museum.
