Baldomero Aguinaldo Shrine is a two-storey ancestral house owned by Emilio's cousin, Baldomero Aguinaldo. Built in 1906, the house is made of stone and Philippine hardwood such as molave and narra. It shows influences of the classic bahay na bato design with its large sliding windows, ventanillas, intricate carvings on wall panels, and painted floral patterns on the ceiling. Restored in 1982 and inaugurated as a museum a year later, the shrine features antique furniture on loan from the Intramuros Administration and personal memorabilia of Baldomero Aguinaldo. The ground floor, once a storage area for farm produce and poultry, now houses a photo exhibit and a few furniture pieces.

Battle of Binakayan Monument commemorates the first decisive victory of Filipino revolutionaries against Spanish colonial forces on November 9-11, 1896. The monument features metal sculptures of the battle's most celebrated heroes, including Emilio Aguinaldo, Candido Tirona, and Gregoria Montoya. Tirona and Montoya both died in combat. Gregoria was hailed as the Joan of Arc of the Philippine Revolution. The battle, a two-fold encounter that simultaneously took place in Binakayan in Kawit and Dalahican in Noveleta, pitted about 20,000 Spanish troops against more than 100,000 Filipino fighters. Outnumbered and overwhelmed by strong counterattacks, the Spaniards suffered heavy casualties and had to retreat. The victory held off Spanish control over Cavite and strengthened Aguinaldo's leadership position in the Katipunan. It also boosted morale and inspired more Filipinos to join the fight for independence.
