Shijiahe Town was established in 1955, and was established in 1987. On November 8, 2016, Shihe Town was renamed Shijiahe Town upon the approval of the provincial government. Located in the northwest of Tianmen City, it is the birthplace of the world-famous Shijiahe Culture. The discovery of settlements in the Neochronic Age proves that both the Yangtze and Yellow River cultures are the origin of the Chinese civilization. The excavation of the cultural relics at the Tucheng site in the Western Zhou Dynasty represents the formation of a patrilineal clan.
