This pockmarked 19th-century house was the scene of the first battle of the 1910 Revolution. The house retains its bullet holes and some revolutionary memorabilia, including a room dedicated to female insurgents.
Betrayed only two days before a planned uprising against the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz, the Serdán family (Aquiles, Máximo, Carmen and Natalia) and 17 others fought 500 soldiers until only Aquiles, their leader, and Carmen were left alive. Aquiles, hidden under the floorboards, might have survived if the damp hadn’t provoked a cough that gave him away. Both were subsequently killed.
