During the Ming dynasty, the Wang, Tsai, and Cheng families built houses in the area to farm the land. The area was thus named Sankuaicu (三塊厝; "Three Houses"). After the handover of Taiwan from Japan to the Republic of China, the area was renamed Sanmin to set a good example.
As of August 2006, Sanmin District has 87 villages; which are divided into 1,749 neighborhoods; which are further sub-divided into 125,561 households.

"103年7月19日，高雄日僑學校正式向舊校舍道別，在這屋簷下歷經了無數次的歡樂始業式、也歡送了無數屆學生畢業，43年的春夏秋冬中學生們來來去去，唯有校舍見證了老師與同學們的歡笑與甘苦。向它道別，必然帶著不捨與惆悵心情，故在遷校前夕，畢業生、以前的家長及同學們，大家齊聚一堂，或撿拾校園中的落葉、或拿回自己名字的名牌、或拍下充滿回憶的校園一角，共同拾取點點滴滴的珍貴回憶。"
