Another wealthy family and their Ancestral Mansion. Unfortunately this one has fall into disrepair because the descendants of the original builders are unable to support the expenditures involved in keeping these magnificent buildings in the 'prime'.

He was general in the Philippine Revolutionary army in 1898. He was one of the most outstanding businessman in the Visayas, he was a very successful sugar producer, the founder & owner of Panay Electric, and the manager of the De la Rama Central and owner of M/S Don Esteban. He was second Vice President of the Asociacion de Los Veteramos de la Revolucion and commanding officer of the 6th Division of the National Volunteers of the Philippine Islands with the rank of Major General. On February 22, 1921, Don Esteban de la Rama, a sugar baron after whom a street in Iloilo City is named, was granted a franchise “to install, operate, and maintain an electric light, heat, and power system in Iloilo”. The franchise, with a lifetime of 50 years, was embodied in Act 2983 issued by the Philippine Legislature. In 1923 he founded Panay Electric He served as Senator for two terms: 1941-1945 and 1946-1947.

It was alleged by the Tax Authorities that Don Esteban’s estate misstated his income for his terminal year by about P56 million. The assertion of the Tax Authorities was challenged and appealed several times and resulted in the same outcome each time – Judgement in Favour of the Plaintiff (The Tax Man). Several years later, in November 1966, the Supreme Court delivered a final judgement and a demand for payment of P86 million was made. Arrangements were made with the bankers to pay that debt and the Iloilo Ancestral Home and its adjacent properties were used a collateral for the loan. Over the years, it became more and more difficult to support the obligations to the bank and the bank was eventually forced to foreclose on the loan and take over the extensive properties on De la Rama Street in Iloilo City proper. The result is what can be seen in the photos that follow in our presentation. The place is now completely run-down, has been totally looted of anything of value and a formerly magnificent estate is infested with “informal settlers”.
