A small publication on the Bale Aquino or the Aquino Ancestral House in Concepcion, Tarlac. Home to three generations of the Aquino family, it was built around 1938 by Benigno Simeon Quiambao Aquino, when he was the Secretary of Agriculture and Commerce in the Commonwealth Government. The two-story Art Nouveau mansion reflected the family's rich Kapampangan heritage and devotion and redefined the town's landscape. It was declared a national landmark by the National Historical Commission in 2011.
