On July 1, 1953, Canghu Township (滄湖鎮) was renamed Jinhu Township (金湖鄉), a rural township. In December 1957, Jinhu was changed back into an urban township.[4]

In 1959, Jinqiong Township (金瓊鄉) was created from the two villages Zhengyi and Qionglin. On September 16, 1965, Jinqiong Township was disbanded and the major part of the two villages returned to Jinhu Township.[4]
