It was about 500 years ago when people first settled in Oeam Village. The landscape is a combination of towering jangseung (village guardian totem poles), sotdae (wooden poles with a carved bird on top), thatch-roofed houses and hanok buildings. This rural village is a place where visitors can experience traditional customs and participate in hands-on programs.
Formed when the Yi family from Yean settled here, the village is nestled at the base of Gwangdeoksan and Seolhwasan Mountains. Once a simple farming village, Oeam has now become a cultural village offering various programs and activities to both locals and tourists. Many of the buildings are thatch-roofed houses, and the traditional technique of thatching has passed down in the village until today.
About 20 houses now function as accommodation facilities with capacities ranging from 5 to 15 guests, depending on the size of the hanok. The village has a 6.5-kilometer stone wall that incorporated rocks removed from earth when the village was being formed. Persimmon and ginkgo trees can be found all around the village. There is also an old zelkova tree that’s about 600 years old. Because of its outstanding value, the village was designated as Important Folklore Cultural Heritage No. 236.
30 hands-on programs are available for visitors interested in experiencing folk cultures. Programs vary by season and month, so consult the schedule before your visit.
