Teodoro Morada Ancestral House is a two-storey heritage house owned by the family of Teodoro Morada 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 4:32 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.
Because Teodoro Morada Ancestral House is painted white, it is called by the locals as the White House. It was built in the early 1900s and was declared as a heritage house (one of over twenty in Silay) pursuant to board resolution of the NHCP.
How to get to Teodoro Morada Ancestral House
From Bacolod-Silay International Airport, go outside the airport’s main gate (it’s to your left if you exit the arrival area) to ride a tricycle (Php10-15) going to Silay downtown and walk along Rizal Street to Teodoro Morada Ancestral House.
From Bacolod Ferry Terminal, ride a jeepney going to Bacolod North Terminal (Php 8) then ride a Ceres bus going to Victorias, tell the driver to drop you off at Silay (Php 15) and walk your way to the house.
