The Laihu Police Post is located on a convex ridge south-west of Mount Mingdouyo with a panoramic view. It is at an altitude of about 1,030 meters and on a 1,000 square meters wide foundation. In the early days of the Japanese occupation, when the Governor-General in Taiwan sent its troops to set up the Aiyong Border, it first set up a checkpoint here. Later in 1922, the Laihu Police Post was set up, facing Atayal’s Yehmakan Hamlet of the Syakaro group across the river.
In the early post-war period, the National Government took over and used it as a police station. It was renamed successively to Minsheng Police Station and Yunshan Police Station. Finally, when it was converted into a brick structure in 1963, the name was changed back to Minsheng Police Station.
Today, the police station has been relocated to the opposite bank of the Syakaro River. Only the foundation and stacked stone walls remain at the former site.
