MANILA, Philippines - The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has included the Pamintuan Mansion in Angeles City in the list of property dividends submitted to the Department of Finance (DOF).

BSP Governor Amando Tetangco Jr. said the finance department agreed to transfer reponsibility over the property to the National Historic Commision that would convert the Pamintuan Mansion into a museum.

“In this manner, we ensure that ownership of the Pamintuan House remains with government... and Angeles City will be assured that this historic landmark in its midst will be preserved for the next generations as witness to the history and heroism of our people,” Tetangco stressed.

The BSP held office at the historic Pamintuan House in Angeles City over the last 23 years.

The first anniversary of the Philippine Republic was held at the Pamintuan House that served briefly as residence of the first Philippine president – Emilio Aguinaldo.

Last November 2006, I was able to get permission to see and take photos of the rarely seen interior of Pamintuan Mansion which housed the Central Bank Regional Unit - Angeles City.
The lightings inside the Mansion is not bright enough for photograph purposes and below were some selected photos.
