|A place where people can see traditional jumak (small taverns serving food and liquor),
Samgangjumak serves food for people who travel through Samgang Port, offers rooms
for peddlers to stay, and provides poets with a place to sit and get some ideas for their poems. Built around 1900, this tavern is small but the floor plan is so compact that its historical
value in Korean architecture is high. It also reflects the local history and culture of the past.
The tavern closed after the last jumo (female owner of a jumak) Yu Okyeon died in 2006. However, it has been restored and re-opened in 2007 with a new female owner welcoming guests. The total restoration cost amounted to 150 million won (approx. US $140,000).
