“This two-storey ancestral house is 90% original and well-preserved,” Arceo added.

The ancestral home was declared as the first national heritage landmark in the city by the National Heritage Institute of the Philippines last April 6, 1993. Antique chairs, tables, dividers and many more household items and stuff are well-preserved to this date and serve as “mirrors of the history of the old times.”
