This old manor emerged in the first decades of the 16th century. It is located on the first peripheral area, in the Santa Bárbara borough. The original village settled there due to the working of quarries that supplied the stones used to build the great colonial buildings, the first of the New World, such as the Fortress, the Cathedral, the monasteries and convents, the Hospital of San Nicolás de Bari, the Viceregal Palace of Diego Columbus, the Royal Houses and the most important residences, especially those on Calle Las Mercedes and Las Damas. ￼ In these surroundings, the house on Calle Meriño 355 has been mildly modified. Its quarry walls and its location nearby a ravine, suggest it could have originally been an industry. However, once established as a residence, it was modified few times throughout five hundred years. ￼The residence should have stood out because of its corner location, and two levels, displaying balconettes on the second story. The balcony overlooking the street, formerly known as de Los Plateros, is a further element, which provided important detail to the main facade. ￼The interior features a double arcade on both levels, overlooking the courtyard. A special feature is the spiral staircase that connects the second level with a roofed terrace, a luxury few colonial manors featured, among them: the Alcázar or Viceregal Palace, and other important buildings such as the Fortress of Santo Domingo and the Cathedral. ￼The name of the manor is due to the establishments owned by the local family whom occupied it for three generations. It began as a silversmith shop owned by the metalsmith Juan Weber. Then, his daughter Delia Weber hosted a library and cultural center, since she was a prominent poet, playwright and short story writer, of known style and a vast collection of works published during the 1920s. The author had a very multifaceted personality; she was also a pioneer actress of Dominican films, a teacher and notorious painter. Her activism in defense of the rights of women, led her to found women’s organizations of great importance back then.
