The area around Shuyang belonged to one of Dongyi states called ‘Tan (郯)’. (民国)戴仁、张景衡、吴鹏等监修,《民国重修沭阳县志》,江苏古籍出版社,2008年.

This is also the first city in this place in accordance with ‘The Spring and Autumn Annals’ which compiled by Confucius. In the Warring States period, the Chu (Chu (state)) conquered and controlled the land of this area. After Qin's wars of unification, the Qin Dynasty was established by Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. ‘Houqiu County (厚丘县)’ was founded for administrating the region and the governments of later dynasties generally follow this pattern. In 549 AD, the imperial government of Eastern Wei abandoned the old castle and city wall and moved the local government into a new county seat near the north of Shuhe River.
