Changhua was founded in 1723, in the first year of the reign of Emperor Yongzheng, Qing Dynasty, which came from a shortened form of the phrase "demonstrating the benevolence of the Emperor" ("zhang xian huang hua" in Chinese)

During the Japanese colonization, Changhua City was under the administration of Taichu Ken, then Taichu Cho and then Shoka Cho. In 1933 (the eighth year of the Showa period) the Shoka Town was merged with Nankaku Village and Otake Village to be upgraded as Shoka City, under the administration of Taichu Prefecture. After World War Two, Changhua City was established as a provincial city and was downgraded as a countycontrolled city in 1951. It has been the seat of Changhua County since then.
