Silay City had been known in the past as the « Paris of Negros » and the « cultural and intellectual hub of Negros » due to the residents’ love for knowledge and works of art, and its collection of heritage mansions built during the height of the Philippine sugar industry’s success, of which Negros was the center. Most notable among these houses is Balay Negrense, the mansion of the son of the first Negrense sugar baron, Yves Leopold Germain Gaston and the Hofileña Ancestral House built by Manuel Severino Hofileña for his wife, former Miss Silay Gilda Ledesma Hojilla.
