Rice farming first began on the Korean peninsula in Yeoju-si during the Bronze Age. Yeoju-si is also the proud home to such great names in Korean history as King Sejong, King Hyojong, the Joseon scholar Mokeun Lee Saek, Woo-am Song Shi-yeol, Lee Gyu-bo, and eight Joseon queens.
Yeoju-si was also the region where the fiercest battle of the early Righteous Army was fought and was also a strategic military point to kept out external influences.
Rich with history, there are 71 national and natural monuments in Yeoju dating from prehistoric times up until the present age.
