Traditional Houses 

About the house      Seon-gyo-jang is located at Unjong-dong, Kangrung-city, Gangwon-do province. It had been built for about 200 years, 9 generations  from 1756 when the Inner Building was built by Lee Naebon. It is a peculiar example of 'the wealthy farmer's house' in the late Choson Dynasty. It consists of 9 buildings with 102 bays (Kan). They are organized and unified into a rare manor house by the Servants' Building (Haengrang-chae) which is a datum in the overall design of the territory. The house is the largest one among the remained Choson dynasty houses.
