Cultural Heritage Introduction

In 1389 (1st year of King Gongyang), this school was built to enshrine the ancestral tablet of Hyeon Yoo, and for the education and reformation of the common people. The school was moved to its current location in 1590 (23rd year of King Seonjo), but was abandoned due to the Japanese invasion of Korea in 1592. The school was destroyed by fire during general Yi Gangnyeon’s battle with the Japanese in 1907.

Starting with the construction of Daeseongjeon Hall in 1909, the school was rebuilt with Myeongnyundang Hall in 1922, Dongjae in 1980, and Seojae in 1981. Buildings that are standing are Daeseongjeon Hall, which features a gambrel roof with a three-sided façade and a two-sided flank, Myeongnyundang Hall with a hopped-gable roof featuring a three-sided façade and two-sided flank, Dongjae and Seojae with four facades and one flank each, Jegigo (storage room for ritual objects), Naesanmun Gate, and Oesammun Gate.

Enshrined in Daeseongjeon Hall are memorial tablets of 5 seong, 10 cheol, Songjo 6 hyeon, and 18 hyeon of Korea. In the Joseon Dynasty, the nation gave the school land, its full support, and servants to serve the needs of the school. One instructor taught thirty students at the time, but the Gabo Reform of 1894 brought changes in the educational system, which rid the school of its educational capabilities. The institution engages in semiannual ceremonies every spring and fall, and burns incense on the first and fifteenth of every month.

The site has been designated as the Chuncheongbuk-do Tangible Cultural Heritage 105, and is currently used as Myeungnyun Academy for regional students. The school has numerous instructors to teach Confucian principles.
