Weekend Trip to Cheorweon (4 of 13) – The Communist Labor Party Building Near Cheorweon

We're on a quick trip up near the DMZ today visiting some places I haven't been before. This area is north of the 38th parallel and was under Communist rule before the Korean War. One of the spots we stopped by yesterday was this building, which served as the North Korean government's headquarters between 1945 and 1950. There was also a county police station next door from the Japanese colonial period, but which only endures now as a pile of concrete pieces on the ground (as shown in the bottom photo).
