The House of Changwon was home to Du-cheol(pen name Toeeun), a famous scholar. This house is now used as a traditional lifestyle and culture learning center for studying traditional Korean culture and customs. Built on a 10,209 ㎡ site, the house contains 14 buildings, including one exhibiting collections of farming tools. The establishment itself is one of few living artifacts in the country, offering a peak into how ancient Koreans lived.
The venue provides a cultural class for visitors and other events and functions such as a chapel for traditional weddings and other ceremonies. Nevertheless, it is a great escape from the bustling downtown as the house features spacious room for a leisurely walk, in addition to beautiful gardens and ponds that Toeeun used to love.
