BokcheonPastor Songam Ham Tae-yeong, Korea’s 3rd vice president, visited here on March 5th, 1958 and saw a pleasant mineral spring to which he presented the name “Bokcheon”, praying that it would be a blessed spring.
Yeou PassIt was a remote area with many trees and a great number of foxes, which is where the name, “Yeou Pass” comes from. On the east and west of Yeou Pass, there are Halmisan Mountain and Seongjusan Mountain, respectively. During spring, cherry blossoms adorn the hillside.
Hau PassA long time ago, merchants who traveled back and forth between Baemnae Market (present-day Sincheon-dong, Siheung) and Hwanghae Market (present-day Gyeyang-myeon, Gimpo) often passed Hau Pass. The name stems from the fact that the merchants let out heavy breaths, “Hau, Hau”, while walking over steep hills.
Mari PassIt refers to a hilly road from present-day Samik Apartment and Sosa Police Station, passing by Bucheonnam Middle School and reaching the upper part of Dotigol. People typically went over Mari Pass to go to Incheon, and there is now a military camp located here.
Peach FarmAs a place where peaches, a regional product of Bucheon, are cultivated, it hosts a Peach Festival every year in early August, supervised by Songnae 1-dong citizens community committee.
Songnae StationThe station opened in 1974 as Bucheon became a city. The name stems from “Solan” and it is rising as a hub of transportation since a number of freeways connecting corners of the country go through Songnae Station.
