The presidentia of Baguio was first established in the house of the Campulet at the top of the new Tabacalera road at the lower end of Guisad Valley. Later, the presidentia of Baguio was moved to the present site of the Baguio City Hall. The Spaniards were able to establish order, built churches and schools, made trails and introduced coffee during their long occupation of the area. The Americans came early in 1900 and established their government. This was the first provincial government to be established in the Philippines and this happened a year prior to the inauguration of the civil government of the Philippines. Business in the city flourished with commercial centers put up. Baguio was a newly established township in the Northern Luzon highlands. The Baguio Market then served a small, multicultural community. The market fire in 1970 and the subsequent demolition of the Stone Market stand out in the memory of Baguio residents who witnessed these. A major fire on Feb. 19, 1970 gutted all the stalls at the Stone Market and the Dry Goods Section. Only a year earlier, on Feb. 25, 1969, the city had entered into an agreement with a private corporation to renovate, reconstruct, and modernize the Stone Market. Due to the new modernize market, different problems popped out including losing the sense of culture in the market, large congestion due to poorly planned stalls, congested vehicles getting in fetching passengers, poor choice of overpass position resulting to more congestion of market buyers, and different bad effects to the new roof color of the market
