Sinnyeong-Hyanggyo(Confucian school) Myeongryun-dang
It is unknown when this Hyanggyo was built but it is said to be repaired in the 6th year (1551) of King Myeongjong of Joseon Dynasty when Hwang Joon-Ryang was in the office as the governor.
Then it was situated on Myeongcheon
Later it was burnt down during Imjin-woaeran(Japanese invasion of Korean in 1592) and was rebuilt at the back side of where it is now in the 7th year (1615) of Goanghae-gun, and moved to where it is in the 12th year of King Sookjong(1686).
Myeongryun-dang was originally the lecture hall where teachings of Confucius were taught to a student of Confucianism. It was relatively big and construction structure was sound enough to add roof.
Myeongryun-dang was rebuilt in the 3rd year (1852) of King Cheoljong.
At the same time, other buildings were built.
