Casa del León
Este inmueble es una vivienda construida en los albores del siglo XVI, residencia de importantes personajes de la época colonial, ubicada en la calle Las Damas, primera vía trazada en la Ciudad Primada de América, y que debe su nombre a las damas de la corte de Doña Maria de Toledo, esposa de Don Diego Colón, hijo del Almirante Cristóbal Colón, que tenían la costumbre de pasearse por esta rúa.
Para el año de 1992 se inician los trabajos de restauración de este inmueble bajo la responsabilidad del Arq.-restaurador Dr. Esteban Prieto Vicioso y la supervisión del Arg. Eugenio Pérez Montás, Ing. Héctor Jiménez Roedán (quien dirigió los trabajos de restauración) y los Arqs. Amaury Cestary y Olga Padilla.
Fue cedida a los CLUBES DE LEONES pertenecientes al DISTRITO MÚLTIPLE "R" por el Gobierno Dominicano
el 8 de octubre de 1993 como una muestra de apoyo y confianza al trabajo tesonero que estos clubes realizan en brindar servicios desinteresado a las comunidades más necesitadas. Desde entonces es la sede del CONSEJO DE GOBERNADORES y de los SUBDISTRITOS que lo componen, donde planifican sus actividades comunitarias de servicio. Al conmemorarse los 100 años de la fundación de los CLUBES DE LEONES a nivel internacional y al develizar esta tarja, el



CONSEJO DE GOBERNADORES 2017/2018, en coordinación con la DIRECCIÓN DE LA CELEBRACIÓN DEL CENTENARIO 2014/2018, le rinde homenaje a
MELVIN JONES, fundador del Leonismo Internacional y a todos los compañeros leones dominicanos que han dedicado parte de su vida en tan noble y meritoria institución de servicio.
