An old story
· Origine of Dongmaegi Mountin.

The direction of the valleys and foot of mountains where the arboretum is located faces towards the east. So it is said to be called Dongmaegi (East) Mountain.

· Bumbawi Cave (Tiger Rock Cave)

BumBawi cave was named because a pair of tigers lived in this cave until the 1940s. Because of this terrible tiger couple, the inhabitants could not cut the surrounding trees, and the forest was lush. It is said that in the 1950s, they could barely cut trees and use charcoal and firewood.

· Armory Warehouse Area

The area across the arboretum, called the "Mbak Goal", was a place where there was a long time ago a professional weapon for making swords and axes and a pottery kiln called Sagisil.
