Oegosan Onggi Village was established when earthenware master Heo Deok-man settled in the area in 1975 and several artisans and potters all over Korea followed after him to preserve the tradition of onggi (earthenware). The village today showcases a massive collection of various earthenware products, which creates a unique sight in the folk village. Over 50% of the country's earthenware products are crafted at this village. The village also features several attractions for visitors to enjoy, such as the Ulsan Onggi Museum, which houses the largest earthenware pottery recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records; and the annual Ulsan Onggi Festival, with many diverse activity programs.
