The Baguio Historical Society, Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association, and Department of Tourism will be setting up a “geo park” at the historic Bell House in Camp John Hay.
A component of the geo park is a virtual mining museum, which will be accommodated at the Bell House library.
A memorandum of understanding will soon be signed to formalize the agreement along with the John Hay Management Corporation.
JHMC president Jamie Agbayani said their consenting to the putting-up of a geo park is to contribute to nation building by way of informing the public of Baguio’s significance in history.
She said this also adds attractions in the Bell House, one of the destinations in Camp John Hay.
She said the JHMC is elated to have contributed in achieving one of the dreams of the Baguio Mining Museum, which was to set up a Mining Museum but was never realized due to some problems in the venues they have chosen.
The DOT, meanwhile, would be installing historical markers from Kennon Road to CJH.
The JHMC, PMSEA, and the DOT are hoping to finish the project before the city’s 105th charter anniversary on Sept. 1.
