Duarte house-museum to be restored
After strong media pressure and a protest headed by leading members of the Fuerza Nacional Progresista (FNP) party – including presidential candidate Pelegrin Castillo – the Medina administration has entrusted the Office of Supervisory Works of the Presidency (OISOE) to complete the remodeling of the House of Duarte, the nation’s founding father.
A budget of RD$30 million has been assigned and OISOE director Francisco Pagan says that the restoration work, which has been on hold for three years, will be completed in three months.
Pagan made the announcement yesterday, Thursday 3 December 2015 during a press conference at the Instituto Duartiano, accompanied by its president Jose Perez Savinon.
The house-museum is on Calle Isabel La Catolica in Santo Domingo’s Colonial City.
