The old municipal building built in the mid 19th century was a witness to much of Carigara's history, being the seat of government
during the Spanish-American war, Japanese, and post war regimes. Repairs are being made so it can be used as a museum and
The Cassidy Elementary School built in 1911, is named after Thomas Cassidy, one of the first American teachers assigned to

"Gawas En Harigi"
This is what Carigaran-on's call this building because its posts are situated outside the structure. This was built by a Chinese
merchant facing Carigara bay in the early 1900s. Today its famed profile still graces the Carigara landscape.
The Holy Cross Academy in the '50s
Another old house in Carigara. Can somebody e-mail me whose or where this house is situated?
The last house in your picture is the house of Abanilla in Jugaban. If I am not mistaken it is still standing there at the
corner of the provincial road and the street where the Jugaban church is (atobangan ni Man Gorio Larraga), I don't know the
name of the street. Tinotombok ito hini nga kalsada. Regards. I like your website and I open it from time to time. Amola.
