Originally YongdamHanggyo was located north of Yongdam-myeon Okgeori 358 beonji , behind Yongdam Elementary school and Yongdam middle school, southern end of Yonggangsan, which is 350m from the front the road in front of Yongdam elementary school.  It was appointed cultural asset number 17 but was moved to the location today, on the left side of the road going from Donghyang-myeon Daeryang-ri to Neunggeum-ri.   The relocation was finished on December 25, 1998.  

YongdamHanggyo was founded in the early Goryeo era and was renovated by Choi Ja Bi during the reign of King Gongyang(1391).  In Joseon Dynasty, during the reign of King Seonjo(1592), the building was burnt during the invasion of the Japanese, and the Park Ji Sul reconstructed the building on the following year and moved a bit east.  In 1633, Oh Jun renovated the building and moved it where it used to stand.

Afterwards during the reign of King Hyeonjong(1664), Hong Suk reconstructed the building.  The building lasted the Japanese reign however it collapsed in 1950 because it was old. Due to the influence of Park Pyeong Seok, the building was repaired and in 1974, they replaced the old tiles of the Daesungjeon(palace with a mortuary tablet of Confucius) and renovated the library.

Daesungjeon is divided into 3 parts in the front, 3 parts on the side, and two parts on the left.  One part at the front end is living quarters and two parts at the back are rooms.

Jegigo, which is on the west of Daesungjeon, is a building of matbaejibung(the basic roof of Korea) with a front room and two rooms on the side. In front of Daesungjeon, there is Naesammun consists of 3 lofty gates.

Myeonglyundang is on the other side of a flight of stone steps from Naesammun, and in front of Myeonglyundang there are Siseupjae and Yangsajae on each side of the ground facing each other. Myeonglyundang, which was founded on living rock with 4 front units and a side unit, is of doligidung and matbaejibung. The side unit has 2 units externally, due to the pillar added during repair works.

Siseubjae on the east, with matbaejibung and 4 pillars, has 3 front units and 2 side units. It was designed largely as a ground with 2 rooms behind the middle front unit and the side unit.   

Living stone-based Yangsajae on the west, with doligidung and matbaejibung, is apparently opposite to Siseubjae. It consists of 3 front units and a side unit with a ground and 2 rooms like Siseubjae. There is Sanglyangmun written 'Ѻ Ҵ(1870) ء ˽ Ҵ ߾.   

The tablet house in the north corner of Yangsajae, behind the middle wall, consists of single unit with matbaejibung. It was built after the framing is complete in 1930, april, 5, at 4 o'clock. There are 2 tablets; one is 'Ѻҷ()' and the other one on the right is'Ѻ(߲ ߲Ҵ )'.  Oesammun behind the east corner of Myeonglyundang, facing the front wall, has 4 pillars and 3 lofty gates.
