Presidencia Municipal
Inicialmente el Palacio Municipal se conocía con el nombre de Casas Reales, y era la vivienda del gobernante indígena. En el año de 1674 tuvo lugar la visita del Alcalde Mayor Martín de Mendalde, quien visitando los pueblos, ordenó la reedificación del inmueble. Se sabe que el edificio fue renovado durante el Porfiriato. Se adjudica su construcción a don Rafael Arias Rivera y a don Atilano Covarrubias, entonces Presidente Municipal.
