House of Kim Dong-su (Designated as Important Folklore Material No. 26 in May 26, 1971)
The House of Kin Dong-su is preserved in its original form as an upper class residence house commonly known as the 99 Kan House. The house was built by Kim Myeong-gwan (1755-1822), the sixth grandfather of Kim Dong-su. In front of the house is the upper Dongjingang River flowing from west to south, and the back of the house is the Changhasan Mountain, rising 150 m above the sea level. The house was placed exactly on Baesanimsoo site (a geomancy term referring to a site with mountain in the back and river in the front.) The house is simply structured but with a hint of creativity of its builder. It was never repaired or remodeled since its initial construction, and therefore is a very important folklore material to peak at the lifestyle of nobles during Joseon Dynasty.
