Jose Corteza Locsin Ancestral House in Silay

Jose Corteza Locsin Ancestral House is a two-storey heritage house owned by the family of Jose Corteza Locsin, a Filipino doctor and politician, in Silay City in the province of Negros Occidental, the Philippines. Because of its cultural, architectural, and/or historical significance, it is one of the recognized and declared heritage houses of the Philippines by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP).

I went here at 4:36 p.m. on August 29, 2013 with my old office mates, Chenie and Lindsay. This was during our Silay Heritage Walk in Negros Occidental, the 24th province on my list.
