Lumangan is situated in the Bacauan Valley and is 2 kilometers from the national highway and 5 kilometers from the poblacion. It is accessible to transportation during the entire season.
In 1855, Lumangan was called Bitaoyan with some 20 houses scattered along the bank of Bitaoyan (now Bacauan) river. Capitan Mariano Franko Toledo ordered the residents to live in one place and they settled near Lumangan creek. Stories were told that local settlers were engaged in "pang-lumang" activity. A sort of clay forming job as their search for income. When the local Spanish priest visited the place, he named it Lumangan.
Barangay heads were Tomas Montevirgen, Melchor Mosura, Teodoro Monasca, Marcos Fatagani, Luciano Mondido, Hugo Nayon, Anastacio Fermindoza, Ponciano Mondido, Cirilo Montealto, (1942-1943), Uldarico Nayon (1944-1945), Bruno Nuņeza (1946-1947), Gaudencio Morante (1945-1951). Federico Nayon (1952-1955), Jose Naciongayo (1964-1967) and Antonio Napuli (1968-1971) and a woman barangay captain Amalia Montealto (1972-1989) who was once a member of the town's Sangguniang Bayan. Under her, Lumangan achieved improvements and had won honors in the 1974 cleanliness and beautification contest sponsored by the municipality.
Residents observed the feast of their patron "Desposorio" on November 25. The fiesta in this place started before World War II by Eusebio and Leon Naciongayo.
The once prime mover in all of Lumangan's affair was Felipe Montealto of the Bureau of Forest Development (BFD).
In the early 80's, residents were relocated in a nearby place named UPV Relocation Center I as implemented by the University of the Philippines with same few local settlers that remained near Lumangan Creek now called sitio Sapa.
Succeeding heads of the barangay were Nelson Mosura (1989-1994). It was in his term that he began to reestablish the relocated site of Barangay Lumangan. Various infrastructure were built. He initiated programs that were carried in by Francisco Farigde when he succeeded as Punong Barangay in 1994-1997. He was followed by Jennefer Nagret in 1997-1998.
