In 1871 the first newspaper in rural Buenos Aires, “El Monitor de la Campaña”, was printed and published here by Manuel Cruz and the Engineer Carlos Lemée. In 1873, when Cruz died, the publication stopped and the house was donated to Manuel Cruz’ widow as a sign of gratitude from the entire community. The house was converted into a museum in 1972. The press “Marinori”, used to print the newspaper, is displayed in the back room.

It is open from Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm. Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free for all visitors.
