Community Information Center

Equipped with the community information office, the onggi history museum, video rooms, and seminar rooms, the Community Information Center provides information about the history and tradition of onggi village. Also, it is used as a space for information and a rest so that local residents can improve their lives.

Community Information Center
After the village founder Heo Deok-man passed away, each of his pupils built a plant and now has created the top national onggi village.

There is no record that demonstrates when onggi used to make in Onyang. However, according to oral tradition, there had been an onggi tube before 1910 in Taehwa-dong, Namchang (what is now near Namchang High School). It no longer exists. The current onggi business in Gosan-ri was started by Heo Deok-man who ran the onggi business in Yeongdeok in Gyeongsangbuk-do and came here to escape from the Korean War in 1950s.
The right photo shows the chamber kiln remodeled by Heo Deok-man when he created what is now Oegosan Onggi Village in the late 1950s.
