History
In early days, the northern areas of Singapore were concentrated with gambier and pepper plantations, a major feature that drew Chinese immigrants to set up their homes here. It is believed that Yio Chu Kang was named after a certain Mr Yeo (an alleged Chinese immigrant) who built his chu (Chinese word for “house”) by a kang (Chinese word for “river”).
