Named after Philippe Pétain, Marshal of France, the boulevarde was constructed in 1922 to link the heart of the French Concession with Zikawei, now Xujiahui, the centre of Catholicism in Shanghai. It stretched from Rue Pottier and Rue Henri Riviere in the east, to the intersection of Avenue Haig and Rue de Zikawei in the west.

A large number of mansions were built along the road in the 1920s, with some high-end apartment blocks built in the 1930s as land value soared in the area. The French Concession was handed over by Vichy France to the Wang Jingwei government in 1943, which renamed the boulevard as "Hengshan Road", after Mount Heng, a sacred mountain in Hunan province.

Just off Hengshan Road near the Hengshan Road Metro station, on Gao'an Road, are some of the few remaining manhole entrances mark "CMF" (Conseil Municipal Fran?ais). The man hole covers have been replaced, but the metal structures around the outside are original.
