With a history of 1400 years, Nanxun has a long story to tell about its splendid days of yore. Nanxun was a blooming town in the Southern Song Dynasty and by the reign of Emperor Jiajin of the Ming Dynasty, about a half century ago, it became one of Zhejiang Province's important commercial towns because of the development of the silk industry. Ancient poems refer to the town beautifully descriptive verse: "thousands of households gather here on this water town market, and fishing boats and merchant vessels call at it side by side." and "At the night market, you can buy water bamboo shoots and lotus roots, and in spring ships carry silks and brocades..."
