이 집은 서애西厓류성룡柳成龍1542-1607의 종택으로 17세기에 지어졌다. 류성룡은 벼슬을 마치고 귀향한 후 풍산현에 있던 작은 초가집에서 죽음을 맞이한 것으로 전해지는데, 그의 손자와 제자들이 생전의 학덕을 추모하기 위해 지은 것이다. ‘충효당’은 평소에 ‘나라에 충성하고 부모에 효도하라’는 말을 강조한 데서 유래한다. 12칸의 긴 행랑채는 류성룡의 8세손인 류상조柳相祚가 병조판서를 제수받고 부하 군사들을 수용하기 위해 지은 것이다.

This is the head house of the family of Ryu Seong-ryong (1542-1607), a descendant of the Pungsan Ryu Clan. It was built in the 17th century. A head house is a residence passed down among the successors of a family lineage.
After retirement, Ryu is said to have died in a small thatched-roof house in Pungsan. This head house was built by his grandson and disciples to honor his learning and virtues. Its name, Chunghyodang, literally meaning “a house of loyalty and filial piety,” came from his words that encouraged loyalty to the dynasty and filial piety to parents.
The long servants’ quarters was built by Ryu Sang-jo, the 8th-generation descendant of Ryu Seong-ryong, in order to accommodate his soldiers after he was appointed minister of military affairs.
This is the head house of the descendants of Ryu Seong-ryong (1542-1607), a member of the Pungsan Ryu Clan. A head house is a residence passed down among the male successors of a family lineage. This house was built in the 17th century by his grandson and disciples to posthumously honor his learning and virtues.
Ryu Seong-ryong was a respected statesman, in particular, for his foresight as a military strategist and his service as chief state councilor during the Japanese invasions of 1592-1598. After the war, he returned to his hometown, where he wrote down his records of the war in a book called Jingbirok. These historical accounts serve as important materials in the study of the Japanese invasions, and the book was thus designated as National Treasure No. 132.
This house consists of a servants’ quarters, men’s quarters, and women’s quarters. There is also an ancestral shrine located behind the house. The men’s quarters is used as a space to perform ancestral rituals. The long servants’ quarters at the front of the house was built by Ryu Sang-jo, the 8th-generation descendant of Ryu Seong-ryong, in order to accommodate his soldiers after he was appointed minister of military affairs.
The name Chunghyodang means “a house of loyalty and filial piety,” which came from Ryu's teachings that encouraged loyalty to one's king and filial piety to one's parents. The plaque bearing the name of the house was calligraphed by the renowed calligrapher Heo Mok (1595-1682).
Chunghyodang is one of the two most well-known properties in the village. The other is Yangjindang, the head house of the descendants of Ryu Seong-ryong's older brother, Ryu Un-ryong (1539-1601), which is located across the street.
