Balay ni Tan Juan - Negros Occidental Attractions

Balay ni Tan Juan

Built in the late eighteen hundreds, the house is a typical bahay na bato, an architectural style prevalent in the Philippines during the Spanish Era.


In 1906, Juan Anacleto Araneta acquired and occupied the house as he wanted to live within the poblacion for the remainder of his life. Without delay he moved in his large family and the place became a microcosm of social and political life.


It was the center of the towns activity especially on November 5 each year when he celebrated the anniversary of the revolution. On October 3, 1924 General Juan Anacleto Araneta passed away in his room.


Today, the house is managed and maintained by the city. In 1996, it opened the house to the public as a lifestyle museum. Balay ni Tan Juan is now a community museum housing the rich socio- cultural heritage of the people of Bago City.
