The Mansion

The Mansion

The Mansion House was built in 1908 to serve as the official summer residence of U.S. Governor-Generals at the instance of Governor-General William Cameron Forbes. The name is derived from the summer cottage in New England of Governor Forbes whose administration the original Mansion House was built under. Architect William E. Parsons, based on preliminary plans by architect Daniel H. Burnham, the planner of the city of Baguio, designed the mountain retreat following the tenets of the City Beautiful Movement. In 1910, the meeting of the Second Philippine Legislature was held at the Mansion House for three weeks.

The Mansion is one of a well known landmark in Baguio, everyone loves to take a picture, but for restriction reasons you cannot go farther than the front walkway.

Known for the summer residence of the President of the Philippines, It has no entrance but you can't go inside because of its security as well. The main thing you can do is just take a photo of the mansion as a souvenir.

You cannot not go here when you went to Baguio! It is already a part of the traveler's itinerary since.

I love how Baguio is included in the housing complex of the Philippines' Commander-in-Chief with The Mansion being the official summer residence of our Presidents. Apart from that, the acquisition and preservation of this structure is very interesting, with its rich history and all. A good place to visit indeed!
