History

In 1123, the Jin Dynasty set Guangning County (Chinese :廣寧縣) in nowadays Beizhen. In Ming Dynasty, the town of Guangning became a base of the Ming troops in Liaotung and a prosperous border trading center. In 1913, the name was changed to Beizhen, which is an alternative name of the Yiwulü Mountain, literally meaning "the guarding mountain of the North". [2] In 1995, Beizhen County became Beining City (北寧市), the name of which is later changed to the current name.
