Silliman Hall - Negros Oriental Attractions

Silliman Hall

As you leave the port area and enter the junction at Rizal Boulevard, a quaint-looking white and red building overlooks the sea. Silliman University is one of the oldest institutions in the country built by American Presbyterian missionaries.

The hall was built in 1905 as an addition to form an “L” with the original 1901 Silliman Institute. This building is considered as the oldest wooden structure of Eastern Stick Style in the Philippines.


The Ground Floor was built with cast iron columns and metal pan ceiling from the debris of a theater in New York that was being demolished. For many years the Ground Floor was known as the Assembly Hall where most of the social and cultural events of the campus were held including the regular mid-week service and Sunday worship service.
