Wangjinzhuang in Shexian County, which has a long history, is a representative of the traditional settlements in Taihang Mountains. Through the in-depth study of the morphological characteristics of Wangjinzhuang settlement, this paper fully excavates its value as a traditional settlement. The overall pattern of the settlement form is complete, showing a linear layout form; the road system is graded, and the structure is clear; the spatial form shows a combination of points, lines, and planes; public buildings are distributed in an orderly manner, with clear functions, and they have a high degree of research value.
