Baguio City, the Philippines’ summer capital, is one of the top destinations in the country to go to if you want to take a break from city life. Aside from its cold climate, fresh produce, various green spaces, and walkable side-by-side tourist spots, Baguio City is also known for its numerous good restaurants.

Did you also know that the summer capital of the Philippines is also home to haunted places with countless scary stories, history, and culture? One is the Laperal White House, located at 14 Leonard Wood Road Brgy. Cabinet Hill, Teachers Camp Baguio City, is now turned into a upscale dining in Baguio!

The Laperal White House is a century-old home owned by the Laperal family during the 1930s. During the Japanese occupation, it is said to have become a Japanese military post where several locals died. There were hearsays that a white lady was sighted in the place alongside eerie sounds and footsteps inside the empty mansion. With that, the vintage house became known as a haunted spot.

Before it was closed to the public in 2013, the Laperal White House was a museum of local bamboo and wood art pieces. Last December 2022, the haunted mansion was reborn as a new restaurant in Baguio City named Joseph’s.
