It was originally owned by Mr. Alejo Acosta, the barrio Captain of Batangas in 1883. It has been related that William Howard Taft, the Governor General assigned in the Philippines during the American Occupation, visited this house, and during his visit, his assassination was attempted by a sniper. To this day, the bullet that would have ended his life is still lodged in one of the doors of the house. (source: batangasnow.com)
