Geoje-dong got the name of Geoje-ri by combining geo of Geopyeong-ri and je ofDaeje-ri in 1914 during the Period of Japanese Occupation. The name “Geoje” originated from Geobeol-ri, which means a large field. It was called Geoje-ri, which means the village with a large dam preventing the flood of Geoje Stream. It became Geoje-dong in administrative reorganization.
Yeonsan-dong is laid out in and around Baesan. Long time ago, it was a low swamp and had a lot of water lilies. Moving towards Baesan, Hwangryeongsan is a mountainous area. Ancient records state is that they named it Yeonsan after the series of mountains or Geumryeonsan. However, Yeonsan-dong has changed and developed tremendously so folks cannot even find the traces of the old times.
