The Stone House in Don Salvador Benedicto

There used to be one but now there are three - one, where the founder of Don Salvador Benedicto, its first mayor and now a Sanguniang Panlalawigan Board Member, Nehemias G. De la Cruz. The second one is home to the current mayor, Mayor Marxlen Del a Cruz and the third one, still undergoing construction is for the other son, Nehemias Jr.

The Stone House has been featured in many local and national television programs including one aired on the The Filipino Channel (TFC). You will find many interesting furniture/art pieces all over the place. Some of my favorites are the old oil lamp which was revived and used as outdoor lamp, the tree trunk which served as the base of a garden table and the body of the sewing machine which got a makeover and is not used as a base for a utility table.

Entertaning guests wouldn't be a problem. Not with the many garden settings, a pavillion (complete with a mini-bar) and a bahay kubo conveniently placed all over the property. We sat and dined where politicians have forged agreements and tv personalities like Cesar Montano and the Viva Hot Babes have had their pictures taken.

  2. If you are coming from Bacolod, you can take the San Carlos via Don Salvador buses from the Ceres north terminal.
