History of Jiashan County
  Jiashan Today  

Jiashan is a place of long history, which was proved from the cultural relics unearthed from Dawangwei, Duwei, Zhang An village and other cultural sites in Jiashan. These cultural relics show that the ancients have lived here farming, growing rice and feeding livestock more than 6000 years ago in the time of Majiabang Culture. On March of the fourth year of Xuande Reign of Ming dynasty (1429), when Hu Gai, the Grand Coordinator and director of Great discipline bureau was inspecting here, he reported to add a county here because of the inconvenient management. So on the 28 March next year, Qianshan town, Yongan town and Fengxian town and part of the Xushan town, Sixian town and Lingrui town in the northeast of Jiaxing were separated from Jiaxing and became Jiashan County. The people living here are friendly, honest and seldom violate the law so they call it Jiashan, because “shan” means friendly and honest. Jiashan was liberated in May 11, 1949. And in 1983 Jiashan was decided as a county and was subordinate to Jiaxing city.
