The Panama Canal Administrator's Official Residence
Former Home of Canal Zone Governors
Balboa Heights, Rep. of Panama

On August 13, 1999 a reception was held at the Panama Canal Administrator's residence for descendants of the Roosevelt Medal Society and the Afro-Antillian Society.   This residence was first constructed at Culebra in 1906 as the residence of the Chief Engineer.  It was moved to Balboa Heights in 1914 and served first as the Governor's residence and now as the Administrator's residence.  Over the years it has undergone several renovations and is a most graceful residence and showplace.  Of course, letting a bunch of CZBrats in was brave -- should have taken more pictures, but thought it was just a little bold to be snapping pictures during such a wonderful experience!  There are many of Al Sprague's original paintings on the walls, such a treat to see them in person.
