About the origin of Wulong's name. The old government of Wulong is located in Tukan. It is said that there is a big temple near the Yamen of old Wulong. There are five dragons carved on the pillars of the temple. These five dragons have been worshipped for hundreds of years, and some people have brightened up and burned money and paper. With the popularity of the legend of the Five Dragons, the small county was changed to the Five Dragons County. This is the origin of Wulong in folklore.According to historical records, "Taiping Huanyu Ji" said: "in the name of Wulong Mountain in Yijie". "Ming Yi Tong Zhi" contains: in today's walnut village, a mountain "runs like a dragon, and there are holes under it, that is, Wulong Mountain". In the thirteenth year of Hongwu in Ming Dynasty (1380 A.D.), because it had the same name as a county in Guangxi Province, the name of "dragon" was changed to "long", which implied the meaning of "mighty and prosperous", and was renamed "Wulong".

Major historical events in Wulong. In the course of thousands of years of historical evolution, several major historical events have brought great impact on Wulong's economy, culture and people's production and life. First, in the Spring and Autumn Period, Wulong was a dependency of the Ba State.

In the early Qing Dynasty, the implementation of the migration from Hunan and Guangdong to Sichuan, immigrants brought advanced Central Plains culture, Jingchu culture and Wuyue culture, which further promoted the local economic and cultural prosperity.
