    Quezon City Brief History

    Quezon City was conceived in a dream of a man incomparable - the late President Manuel Luis Quezon. He envisioned a place where the common man will find his place with dignity.

    In 1938, President Quezon purchased 1,529 hectares from the vast Diliman Estate of the Tuason Family. The following year, the National Assembly enacted the Commonwealth Act otherwise known as the Charter of Quezon City.

    On October 12, 1939, President Quezon signed the Bill into law, thus the city was born. Progress in Quezon City continued until the outbreak of World War II in 1941.

Metro Manila Information

    Seven years later, by virtue of Republic Act No. 333 signed on July 17, 1948, Quezon city officially became the capital of the Philippines and the permanent seat of the national government. Its inauguration as capital city was marked by the laying of a cornerstone for a capitol building at Constitution Hills on October 22, 1949. Subsequently, construction of government building began.

    On June 16, 1950, the City Charter was revised by Republic Act No. 537 which extended its boundaries to its present area of 15,359 hectares or five (5) times bigger than the City of Manila. It lost its title as capital city of the Philippines to Manila by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 940 on June 24, 1976.

    Although some quarters may observe that Quezon City today may not be what its founder had conceived it to be, the efforts made by the past administrations up to the time of incumbent Mayor Ismael A. Mathay, Jr. accelerated toward the development and promotion of the city's tourism potentials, is a great stride towards the realization of the late President Quezon's vision.
