Established in 1899, Bao-an Train Station (保安車站) was originally located 1.5km from the current site, and was called Luqian Train Station(路墘車站). It was later moved to better serve the Luqian Sugar Refinery (路墘糖廠), and is now Taiwan's best-preserved wooden train station from the Japanese period. The building, constructed from Alishan cypress, remains in its original form to this day, and is an important meeting place for nearby residents and students of Chia Nan University of Pharmacy and Science.
This quiet village station rose to fame after it collaborated with nearby Yongkang Train Station (永康車站) to release the Yong Bao An Kang Ticket, which was wildly popular as the name translates as everlasting peace and health. In 2001 local celebrity Jacky Wu released a song entitled "Yong Bao An Kang", with a music video filmed at the station, ing many fans to visit the site.
