By the 1920s, in the city of Concordia, Entre Ríos, livestock was a source of foreign exchange and the Rural Society was founded. It is this landowning class that gives rise to rsidences whose maximum expression is this so-called Palace. The residence of the family of Arruabarrena, was erected between the years 1916 and 1919 by th builder Luis Pepey according to the project and direction of the architect of French origin Gabriel Dulin. The façade is solved in the proper language of the French eclecticism, emphasizing the angle with a significant access and a greater height in the crowning by the attic. From this body, the composition rotates and is completed in what appear to be two complementary wings. Two important sculptures make of patella. The access is materialized wih a carrara marble staircase that reaches a sort of gallery that runs almost the entire body. The residence has four floors: the semibasement, the main floor, the first floor and the space under mansard. In the ground floor access hall there is the main wooden staircase leading only to the upper floor. The hall of distribution of upper floor balconea on the ground floor, giving rise to a double height crowned by a skylight on the deck. The interior ornamentation is eclectic, with suspended ceilings, moldings and bas-reliefs and the large window with vitreaux that runs all the height of the main staircase. When he died in 1926 Don Juan Bautista Arruabarrena and years later his wife, Doña Dominga de la Cruz, his sons decided to sell the house. This happens in the hands of the army and later, in 1973, is about to be demolished. This Palace, currently the headquarters of the Municipal Regional Museum, was the first to study the pathologies that cause and cause deterioration, problems of water entering the building and serious deterioration in the building. In the ceiling, facing later the survey of the pathologies in the interior and exterior ornamentation, as well as the coatings of walls and enclosures, to maintain the original image with the least possible intervention.
