The villagers in Huay Heep Nuea village are “Phu-Tai” migrated from Phuwang Arngkham town in King Rama III era. The name of Huay Heep Nuea village came from the legend. This legend tell that one day while the villagers were searching for fishes in brook, instead of finding fishes, they found an unmovable chest in the brook. So the villagers named this brook as “Huay Heep” for spiritual believing in luck after all, “Heep” in Thai mean chest.

So they added “Nuea” (mean north in English) after “Huay Heep” and it became Huay Heep Nuea village later on.
