Origin of name
Xinchang Town was built in the second year of Jianyan in the Southern Song Dynasty (1128 A.D.), with a history of more than 800 years. Its name comes from the south migration of Xiasha salt field to form a new salt field, so it is called "Xinchang". In the early Yuan Dynasty, there were two branches of Songjiang branch of Zhejiang salt transportation department moving here. It is an ancient town in the south of the Yangtze River formed by salt and prospered by salt.
With the continuous development of salt industry, merchants and Salt Traders gathered here, so the population of Xinchang increased dramatically. At that time, the town's gelou restaurant was crowded with merchants. Its prosperity once surpassed that of the county seat of Shanghai. It was reputed as "the new town of Suzhou" and was the largest town on the Pudong plain at that time. Later, due to the changes of salt field and war, Xinchang Town has experienced ups and downs several times, but it is still a very cultural ancient town of Jiangnan Water Town.  Xinchang ancient town passes through the narrow river course of the town, with exquisite stone arch bridges, houses built by the water, stone revetments on high bases, and saddle shaped water bridges of people along the river, which are very similar to the towns of Zhouzhuang, Zhujiajiao, etc.
