'Hakbong Head House is the head house of the Uiseong Kim clan and was originally built near Sogyeseodang Village School by Kim Gwang-chan, an 8th-generation descendant of Hakbong Kim Seong-il, in 1762. In 1964, the house was moved to its current location.
The main building (bonchae) was extended from a ‘ㅁ’-shaped structure to a ‘巳’–shape structure. The anchae (women’s quarters) consists of a daecheong (main floored room) measuring 2-kan (a unit of measurement referring to the distance between two columns) on the right, an anbang measuring 2-kan on the left, and kitchen at the end. The upper part of the low-ceilinged kitchen has a gobang (storeroom) in which household goods used to be stored. The daecheong is large compared to the overall size of the house because head houses usually held many ancestral rites.
The Hakbong Head House has an impressive modern garden that was created during construction work carried out when the house was relocated after the Japanese colonial era. The well-maintained garden with its fantastically-shaped trees and rocks also serves as a venue for musical concerts on a regular basis. Guests will surely be fascinated to find out about the history of the people who once inhabited this house and dedicated themselves to the country in times of trouble.
