The Mansion House in Baguio City

One of the places frequently visited when in Baguio City is the Mansion house-the home of the President of the Republic of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region.

I was given an opportunity to enter this house and see some things inside.

History

Accordingly, the Mansion House was constructed on 1908. It was used to be the Summer Residence of American Governors-General. Destroyed in 1945 during the war for Liberation but immediately restored in 1947.

The Mansion also served as venue of World Leaders meeting such as the Economic Commission of Asia and the Far East (ECAFE) in 1947, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1948, and South East Asia Union (SEAU) in 1950.

Inside

I entered the Mansion House for the first time during the Cordillera RDC meeting. Its ambiance is Classic. The original form is preserved and it has a wide area for meetings. Of course, portraits of the Presidents of the Philippine Republic is displayed all around.

The Mansion House is indeed a historical place to visit. It keeps parts of the History of the Philippines.
