Brief History

Igcabidio faces Barangay San Fernando on the other side of Oyungan River. It is less than three kilometers from the national road and eight kilometers from the poblacion.

The place derived its name from a weapon called "bidyo" which early natives used to kill wild pigs and deer.

Early heads were known as Ihoy, Edok and Pasio, Vicente Noble headed the barrio longest and was succeeded by Felimon Noche. Bernardo Niguas headed Igcabidio before, during and after World War ii. Those who followed were Vicente Nebreja (1946-1955), Clemente Noche (1956-1959), Vicente Nillos (1960-1963), Josefina Nebreja (1964-1966), Alberto Notorio (1966-1967) and Miguel Nillos (1968-1971), Vicente Nillos (1972-1979).
