Ojukheon House gets its name from the many black bamboo trees that surround it. It was here where Sinsaimdang (1504-1551) lived and where her son Yi I (penname Yulgok; scholar and politician of the Joseon Period) was born. It was built during the time of the 11th King of Joseon, King Jungjong (1506-1544), and remains one of the oldest wooden residential buildings in Korea. It was designated as Treasure No. 165 in 1963 and has been maintained by the descendants throughout the generations.
Inside Ojukheon is Yulgok Memorial Hall, Mongryongsil, where Yi I was born, the household shrine called Munseongsa, and the various entrance gates. There is also Eojaegak, which was built to preserve the inkstone and Gyeokmongyogyeol (a book written by Yi I in 1577 for those beginning their studies), mementos of Yi I.
