Huangyao was built in the Ming Dynasty, and reached its prime during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The family names of the local people were mainly Huang and Yao, hence the town. Yet, despite that greater exposure, the venerable town remains peaceful, still exuding a certain mystique.
