The History of Y Linh Ho Village

The name “Y Linh Ho” originated from the first owner: Mr. Y Linh Ho – who built and developed the village for Dao immigrants. The Dao people came here first and left the village to find a new land. Then, the Hmong moved to this land and settled down until now. However, Hmong people still want to remember the owner – Mr. Y Linh Ho, so they decided to retain the name, and this name is still used at present.
