Information


The Nong Bridge, also known as the Nongdari in Korean, is categorized as the Local Cultural Property No. 28 and is the oldest and the longest stone bridge in Korea.


Its year of construction is unknown but it is said to be built by General Im, the forefather of the Im clan, in the early days of the Goryeo Dynasty. The bridge was built in his hometown, [Jin-cheon, Mun-bak-myeon, Gu-gok-ri, Se-geum-cheon]. However, the building technique of the bridge is very unique as it is written in [Sang-sanji] and [Chosun Hwan-yeo-seung-ram]:

“the bridge was first built by General Im, the forefather of the Im clan,

in the early days of Goryeo dynasty.”

It is definite that General Im in the records is meant by Count Sang-San, General Im Hee. However, in the later days, the Nong Bridge was reconstructed in bigger and stronger scale by General Im Yeon, a descendant of General Im Hee.
