Historical evolution

Ancient city origin

In the pre-Qin period, the district was in Xu, Qianyang and other countries, and it was a place of dispute between Wu, Yue, Lu, Song, Qi and Chu. Archaeology confirmed that the ancient city of Chengyang, which was more than 2,000 years ago, was an ancient water city. In 2006, it was listed as a national key cultural relics protection unit. During the Qin and Han Dynasties, the canal north and south belonged to Fuyang and Lanling counties. Yongjia Nandu, Fuyang County merged into Lu County, later renamed Shouzhang County. After the Eastern Wei Dynasty, Fu Yang was changed to Cheng County. In the Sui Dynasty, Cheng County merged with Lanling County, later known as Lanling County, Zhangzhou and Qixian County.

In the Tang Dynasty, Tai’s village was established here, called Taijiazhuang. Located in the middle and late Tang Dynasty, the quasi-tiger, located outside the North Gate, is the oldest building in Taierzhuang.

During the Northern Song Dynasty, Di Qing, Su Shi and others presided over the large-scale development of the Lizhou iron ore mine in Xuzhou (formerly known as Pengcheng), and the waters of Taierzhuang began to take on the role of iron ore transportation. So far, it was called Penghe, commonly known as the Yuntie River. New river, central ditch.

During the Wanli Period of the Ming Dynasty, the Beijing-Hangzhou Canal was diverted from the Yellow River and passed through the Penghe River.

In the Yuan Dynasty, the earthworms were built, and the Sanhuangmiao Temple and the Xuandi Temple were built in the city, and gradually formed a market town called “Taijiazhuang Collection”.

At the end of the Ming Dynasty, there were 2,000 households in Taijiazhuang. The first name was “Taierzhuang”. The name was found in the 12th year of Chongzhen (1639). The canal defense monument of Yangzhou Road was set up in Huanglinzhuang, southeast of Taierzhuang.

Due to the influence of the Yellow River diversion, the Beijing-Hangzhou Canal once used the Yellow River to transport from Xuzhou to Huai’an in the Yuan and Ming Dynasties. However, the Yellow River is often flooded, causing the smuggling to be often blocked, so there is a so-called “opening of the mouth of the river”. In the 4th year of Longqing (1570), Weng Dali initiated the opening ceremony. In the 28th year of Wanli (1600), he was officially dubbed. The following year, the trial operation was opened under the auspices of Liu Dongxing. After the 38th year of Wanli (1610), the Weihe River completely replaced the Yellow River Yundao and became the economic lifeline and golden waterway of the country.

Historically, the water level downstream of the Taierzhuang section of the canal is 21 meters lower than that of the Weishan Lake. The water drop is large and the water flow is mainly from Weishan Lake. When the Weihe River is opened, there are eight ship locks to control the water flow. Among them, the Taizhuang Gate is located on the south canal of Taierzhuang. It is the first ship lock that was passed when the Beijing-Shenzhen ship was transported from Jiangsu to Shandong. The establishment of the Taizhuang Gate has gathered a large number of people and logistics, providing opportunities for trade and trade, prompting the rapid rise of the social economy of Taierzhuang, developing into a strategic location for defending Lunan and archiving Xuzhou, and the floods and droughts of Huitong North and South and merchants. pier.

Taierzhuang was originally the resident of Wangmu Shangshe, Qipeng Township, Jixian County. In the thirty-fourth year of Ming Wanli (1604), based on the need for the defense, maintenance and management of the Beijing-Hangzhou Canal in the Taierzhuang section, the then Governor of the River, Cao Shi, was invited to post a post along the Canal in the Taierzhuang section, set up a military patrol, and increased the river officer. The Office of the Legislative Council, Taierzhuang began to become a regional central city. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the five rivers and rivers institutions such as the General Rivers, Dongpu Road, Luohe Hall, Handan and Taizhuang Gates were set up in the river section, and the Taizhuang Inspection Department and the Zhangzhou Township Standard were set up in Taierzhuang. The former camp (later changed to Taizhuang Camp), Taizhuang Gate and other military institutions, Zhengsanpin, the five products, the six products, the seven products, the general, the eight products, the county, the eight products The Zhengjiu patrol inspection and other officials at all levels are stationed here.

Qing Shunzhi four years (1647), began to build Taierzhuang Tucheng, completed in the following year. Built on the Chenghuang Canal, it is 1.1 kilometers long from east to west and 1 kilometer wide from north to south. In the 7th year of Xianfeng (1857), a new brick wall was built due to the old base. The bottom of the new city wall is a soil platform, and the wall is 4 meters high. The city wall is inclined upwards from the bottom edge, and the adobe is built in the brick wall, and the width is nearly 3 meters.
