The Laperal White House is a century-old home owned by the Laperal family during the 1930s. It is now an expensive new restaurant in Baguio. During the Japanese occupation, it is said to have become a Japanese military post where several locals died. There was gossip that a white lady was sighted in the place, and eerie sounds and footsteps were heard 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 expensive restaurant in Baguio City named Joseph’s, one must-try restaurant in Baguio.
