           Baguio City – Summer Capital of the Philippines

History - In the first half of the 19th century, Baguio’s natural beauty and charm wasn’t too remote for the Spaniards to explore. The promising economic potentials of Baguio motivated series of Spanish expeditions. The Spanish colonial government had numerous encounters with fierce tribes before finally being able to establish authority in Baguio.

The Americans too discovered Baguio’s potential as a future city. They found a great source of water, carved and designed Baguio as the future summer capital of the Philippines. On November 1900, first civil government of Benguet was established. A rest and recreation camp, later known as Camp John Hay, was built in Baguio. On June 1, 1903, the Philippine Commission named Baguio the summer capital of the Philippines. Kennon Road was built 3 years later

Baguio became a chartered city on September 1, 1909. Baguio prospered before World War II. Bombings destroyed Baguio but rose quickly from the ruins as a strong commercial and educational hub. Baguio until today has always been a great mountain resort as Americans planned.
