The traditional house was lived in by Lee Ja(1480-1533), a scholar and a civil official in Joseon Dynasty. The footman' house burn down and the main building remained. The shrine wasn't created compared to other Yangban's houses, the noble class. It has a special construction that the detached part of the house ( a man's space of the house) and the inner one (main building) are connected as the one building but both a man and a woman used the space separately.
