This historic building also houses the memorabilia of the 6th President of the Philippines, Elpidio Quirino. According to historical records, Quirino was born at the provincial jail where his father served as the warden. His mother, a native of Agoo, La Union, was visiting her husband at that time when she suddenly gave birth on November 16, 1890. (photo by Jasper Espejo)
