Private social clubs primarily for white men only, were important institutions supporting the American "Anglo-Saxon" concept of colonial life. Even before the grand Manila Hotel was opened in 1912 for tourists and Manila's colonial high society, both the Elks and Army & Navy clubs were built on the newly reclaimed, prime real estate at the west end of the Luneta Park.

 

This examines how the Aeta coped with their new situation, what strategies for survival they developed. how they adapted to a radically altered environment, and how in these tumultuous times, they interacted with the lowland population. 

New Notecard design available!

The Las Pinas Bambook Organ is a 19th-century organ made almost entirely of bamboo. It was completed in 1824 by Fr. Diego Cera, who also built the St. Joseph Parish Church where the organ is housed. Due to its unique organ pipes, it became a tourist attraction and remains as such today.

The OFI Library  is a Philippine study center with a collection of nearly 21,000 books, serials, images, and documents relating to Philippine history with some dating back to the 17th century.
 
The OFI Library produced mobile photo exhibits of Filipiniana imagery of various themes which are brought to different schools, universities, local museums, churches and other public venues in Manila as well as the provinces. Interested parties may request for these exhibits. Other exhibits featuring original library materials from the collections are held within the foundation premises.
 
The foundation also hosts conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and other interdisciplinary events. The seminar and conference rooms provide the venue for our educational and cultural programs. These rooms are also available for rent for cultural, socio-civic, as well as corporate activities.
