Brief History

Belen was formerly known as Balaquibao, named cutting to the barrio site. When Captain Silverio Tajanlangit became town head in 1883-1884, he changed it to Belen. The barangay faces Barangay Wayang on the other side of San Jose-Oya-oy River. The early heads of this barangay were Hugo Naquitquitan and Ruben Fauchano followed by Anastacio Failagao. Jose Fauchano (1951-1952)(1956-1959), Ricardo Micmic (1960-1963), Eustaquio Moman (1968-1971)(1972-1989) headed by Estrilla Nagpaton (1993-2002). The present head is Edgardo Nicmic.
