Shezi Island was gradually emerged from Taipei Lake during the Kangxi reign of the Qing Dynasty (about 300 years ago). The new distrincts were mostly named after the formation of rivers, such as Xizhoudi, Fuzhou, Xishawei and Fushan. Local elders are also use these names to call the villages they live in, and also use this as a mark to indicate geographical location.
Shezi Island is located on the northwestern side of Taipei City, which is now the 7th, 8th, and 9th sections of Yanping North Road. It was the earliest active area of Pingpu aboriginal. At the end of the 17th century, the stratum was subsidence by the earthquake. Gradually, Shezi Island accumulated and emerged from Lake Taipei. Once again, it became a fishing and hunting ground to the Pingpu people. Later, people from Tongan County in Quanzhou in Fujian Province of China came to reclaim and formed the settlements.
