Dowon-ri Village in Goseong
Dowon-ri Village in Goseong
The popular name of Dowon-ri village is Hyangdowon but no one knows the origin of the name. Some of the residents who used to live in the present reservoir moved to Dowon 1 (il)-ri and others to Dowon 3 (sam)-ri when the reservoir was newly constructed. Dowon 2 (yi)-ri was called Sagimak because our ancestors made pottery here long time ago and it has become the popular name as is now.
