Built in 1901 by Hilarion Santiago Esquivel, it was
called the White House being the residence of the first Mayor of Jaen. Jose Carlos, another mayor, also lived here. An assassination attempt on him was carried out in this house, believed to be because of politics. The house was strafed from the outside, and in order to avoid the gunshots, Carlos moved from one room to the next.
Realizing he had escaped the attempt, he decided to surrender by waving a white cloth.
Evidence of this frightful event still exists as the bullet holes were never patched up and remain as constant reminders of its past.
A special feature of this house is the crown-like
decorations called acroterion, or crown callados. It is said that if a house bears this adornment, the people who live there are rich and prominent.
The house was moved to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in 2007.
(HOME TO BELLAS ARTES FOUNDATION)
Built in 1867, the mansion, lined by ionic capitals from the colonnaded sidewalk to the columns found in the balcony front, was designed by Felix Roxas y Arroyo, the first Filipino to practice architecture in the Philippines during the Spanish era, for the family of Rafael Enriquez. Originally located at the corner of Calle San Sebastian (now R. Hidalgo St.) and Callejon de Carcer in Quiapo District, Manila, the house was considered the most elegant in the entire country during the Spanish regime, as narrated and described by American historian A.M. Norton.
The mansion was used as the first campus of the University of the Philippines School of Fine Arts with Enriquez as its first director from 1908 to 1926, before his death in 1927. It was also the first school of Architecture in the Philippines. Outstanding artists who were products of the school included Fernando Amorsolo, Guillermo Tolentino, Emilio Alvero, Carlos Francisco, and Tomas Mapua.
In 1927, after the operations of the school was transferred to Padre Faura St., the house underwent various repairs and was used for other purposes such as bowling alley, boys and girls dormitory, sex live shows, and a lot more. Because of the poor maintenance, the house gradually fell into decay. *See also the old version of CCTV in our old houses.
Hiking = reminiscing. From odd school projects, terror professors and pasang-awa thesis grades to ML playoffs, cheap eyeglasses, real-life struggles and uncertain travel plans. A decade of friendship, it is. Grateful to have conquered this beautiful mountain wichu! Grateful for friends who turned into family ✨
