Imgo Seowon is a memorial hall which was built in memory of Poeun Jeong Mong-ju, a loyal subject at the end of Goryo Dynasty who kept his honor with death in order to erect upright the fate of the country faced with crisis. It was built by local residents of Yeongcheon, home of Jeong Mong-ju in the 8th year of Myeongjong (Joseon, 1553). And it became what it is after burning down and reconstruction. The Imgo-seowon houses Jeong Mong-ju's portrait (National treasure No. 1110) and his books (National treasure No. 1109). And 500 year old Gingko tree stand in front of it.
