According to the 2017 report cited below, the masonry boundary wall was built circa 1908 to enclose the Lai Chi Kok quarantine station (now the site of the Jao Tsung-I Academy). Remnants of the wall can still be found near the former Customs Sub-station/Guard house:

"The [Jao Tsung-I] Academy, with High, Middle and Low zones, was once surrounded by a whole granite stone wall. The stone walls one can find in the main and back entrance are those remained [sic]."
