quezonhauspic4Another valuable historical landmark has risen in Quezon City: the reconstructed house of the late President and Quezon City founding father, Manuel L. Quezon, located at the Quezon Memorial Circle, just across City Hall.

The Quezon Heritage House, now a part of the city's cultural and historical treasure, will give people a chance to look at the place that was testament to the birth of the country's premier city 74 years ago.

Today the reconstructed house will not only serve as a museum but also a source of inspiration for Filipinos who love their families and their country.

The Quezon house was originally built in Gilmore Street in New Manila, which was acquired by the family in 1927. It is a two-storey beige and white structure done in neo-classical American architecture. It served as a vacation house of the family; it was also the place where Quezon stayed when he became ill.

More than a house, it was a place of comfort for the family with fond memories of a loving father who always shared time with his children; as a place of refuge for a leader who took the challenge of building an independent nation. It was home to anyone who needs help. In fact, the Philippine National Red Cross was established by Doña Aurora right at its living room.

quezonhauspic5Recognizing the importance of protecting the City's heritage, the city government – under the administration of Mayor Herbert M. Bautista - decided to preserve the house and move it from its previous location at 45 Gilmore Street to the Quezon Memorial Circle. The new foundation of the house was laid early this year and in April, the original structure in Gilmore was disassembled, its parts carefully removed to be used for restoration. The process of disassembling the 90-year old house was finally completed in June.

The reconstruction and restoration of the Quezon Heritage House was made possible through an agreement signed by the city government and the Quezon heirs. The family even donated some furniture and fixtures of the house to be used in the reconstructed house. These include an antique glass cabinet, a brown wooden cabinet, a marble dresser, an antique bed with canopy and headboard.

quezonhauspic6Adjacent to the house, the city government plans to put up the Quezon public library and a memorabilia building.
