The Cang-isok House in baraangay Libo, Enrique Villanueva is the oldest known surviving house in Siquijor. It is also called the Tejano House. Residents often tell stories about the house.

The Cang-isok House is said to be built by a Spanish man named Mariano Tejano in the mid-1800's. It is known as Cang-isok because it is beside the Cang-isok village. But aside from these scant details about it's history, little is known about what happened through time at the Cang-isok House.

The Cang-isok House is built to stand on stilts and uses local hardwoods such as tugas and molave. The stilts are probably to keep wild animals away from the house as most early Philippine houses are. Or it could be because of the changing tides in the area.

Cang-isok House is built not very far away from the shoreline. The roof of the house is made of nipa. There are some galvanized iron sheets in some parts indicating that there had been some recent renovations in recent years.

The current state of the Cang-isok House is of a neglected piece of property. Tourists in Siquijor often visit this place but are disappointed with the lack of effort in preserving this important piece of heritage.
