The Jersey House

The house was conceived following the outline for rural construction in the Pampa. The plan was developed on a central part and two side wings, the whole forming a "U" towards the north.

The front and counter front walls set firmly on mud, are 55 cm. thick. The dividing avails are 35cm. thick, with plastering. The front walls are made with baked brick with no plastering.

The floor tiles are of national handicraft manufacture.

This typical country house of the beginning of the XXth century was restored by the architect Gustavo Borlasca. The style remained the same as the original as well as the materials and the rooms’ distribution.

In these rooms we can find books, documents, deeds, pictures, catalogues, art pieces, pedigrees, photographs, tools, and souvenirs related to the Jersey breed, all of it compiled for years of hard work and the collaboration of breeders and breeders’ associations worldwide. The Jersey Island, the United States, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Uruguay have sent material that our association proudly exhibits to visitors.

Breeders’ annual meetings and Jersey special auctions take place in this House.

Furthermore, it is opened upon previous arrangement with the Jersey Breeders Association.
