~ Discover and describe the ancestral house of Dr. Jose P. Laurel
They said that this ancestral house was restored by Jose P. Laurel’s son Mariano and daughter-in-law Alicia on March 9, 1964 and was donated to the national government to serve as a public library. The 2-storey house has a ground floor of stone and an upper level of wood with wooden posts, sliding capiz windows and a floor of brightly polished wooden planks. The house has a living room, dining room (with its 8-seater dining table and mounted photo of Laurel delivering a speech) and Laurel's bedroom (with its antique 4-poster bed) and office (with Laurel's desk and chair). Beside an oil painting of Laurel is a wooden harp while outside the house is an antique church bell. ~ What are the things that strike you the most? And your realization after seeing and visiting the house of Dr. Jose P. Laurel?
Everything inside that ancestral house gave a big impact to me but what gained most of my attention is the wishing well where in JPL almost lost his life. It’s very memorable that God has always giving him his favors for JPL to live his life to the fullest.
It’s really amazing to see how people lived from the past specially those who fought for the freedom of every Pilipino people. We’re so blessed that we can still reminisce and cherish those moments by the help of visiting the exact place where in our national heroes lived and stay back then. It’s very inspiring and you can really have that feeling that you wanted to be part and to help in the preservation of JPL’s house for the sake of the future generation.

~ Why is it very important to every LYCEAN Student to study the life and works of Dr. Jose P. Laurel as well as visiting his ancestral house? I believe in one Eternal God, Creator and Sustainer of the Universe is the first and the most important principle of JPL, as a Lycean I can say that by implementing this principle all the rest will follow. We really need to study the life and works of JPL
