In line with the preparation for the celebration of the Philippine Freedom Centennial, the Philippine Centennial Commission (NCC), the Commission, laid out the groundwork for the commemoration of the events in Philippine history that culminated in the establishment of Asia's "first constitutional republic" on 12 June 1898. One of the major projects of the Commission is the Centennial Freedom Trail.

The Centennial Freedom Trail is composed of twenty-three (23) national trunk sites located throughout the country. Each of the national trunk sites together with the local branches tell of an important chapter in the country's quest for freedom. Of the 23 national trunk sites, PROS prepared the site selection, feasibility study and detailed design for eleven trunk sites.

The Feasibility Study embodies the concepts and strategies adopted in the implementation of the proposed plans for the historic sites in Calamba, Dapitan, Pugad Lawin, Fort Santiago and Rizal's Last Walk, Binakayan, Biak-na-Bato, Alapan, Sta. Barbara, Tejeros and the Mabini Shrines at Tanauan and Nagtahan. Out of these concepts and strategies are evolved the parameters and criteria for development by which feasibility is measured.
