Located in Deoksan-ri, Ogok-myeon, Gokseong-gun, this is a Confucian academy dedicated to Sin Sung-gyeom, one of the meritorious retainers at the founding of the Goryeo Dynasty.

There are two historical sites dedicated to Sin Sung-gyeom in Gokseong-gun: Deogyangseowon Confucian Academy and Yongsanjae House in Guryong-ri, Moksadong-myeon. The two sites are designated as the Jeollanam-do Local Monument No. 56. Yongsanjae is a building built at his birthplace, and Deogyangseowon is where they taught students to follow his footsteps.

At Deogyangseowon, locals hold an ancestral rite for Sin Sung-gyeom in the second and eight lunar months every year.
