A Weekend of History and Hiking (4 of 17) – Jisu Elementary School

Ever since reading that the founders of both LG and Samsung attended the same elementary school together back in the 1920s or so and that the school is still standing, I've wanted to visit.

It turns out the building's still there but it was closed in 2009, then merged with a newer school, which kept the same name. It took me a short time to figure this out, but the photos below are of both location.
