01 Ojukheon House & Ojukheon Municipal Museum

The Ojukheon House, designated as Treasure No. 165 in 1963, was the birthplace of Sin Saimdang (1504~1551), who has long been regarded as the “ideal mother figure” by the people of Korea, and her son, Yulgok Yi Yi (1536~1584). Its name, Ojukheon, was given based on the pseudonym assumed by Gwon Cheo-gyun, a second cousin of Yulgok, because there were many bamboos that were black, just like crows, around the house.
