The coastal barangay of Naulid named after Naulid River is 3.037 kilometers from the poblacion along the national highway to Iloilo City.
In 1922-23, during the time of Miguel Peņaranda, a school was established but it was closed after seven years. When it was re-opened later, it was named Kirayan Barrio School.
Early heads of this place were Tan Tisoy and one known only as Cabesa Doroy. Tenientes Anastacio Nufable, Adriano Saquian, Paulino Fenis, Casimiro Paronilmo, Joaquin Netura, Calixto Montehermoso, Guillermo Fermiza and Apolino Nufable followed them. During World War II, Hilarion Nufable who served again in 1948-49 headed the barrio. Other post-warheads were Salvacion Natay (1945-47), Manuel Firmeza (1950-51 and 1957), Ruperta Norada (1958), Jose Falleira (1959-, Leandro Norada (1964-67), who became the first president of the League of the Barrio Captains, Fedrico Fenis (1968-69), Consorcia Navales (1970-71) and Ricardo Nufable (1972-79). Morenita Norada was elected barrio captain in 1980 but she also resides in Iloilo City and seldom visited the place, sofronio Navales acted as OIC barangay captain until 1988. Jose Falleria who won in the election in 1989 but had served only for more than one year because of permanent disability. Rosita Espaņola, the highes ranking Barangay Kagawad, served for the unexpired term of her predecessor (1992-1994) Luzviminda T. Pineda, the incumbent Punong Barangay, is now in her third term. She won the two succeeding elections in the year 1994, 1997 and 2002 respectively.
Naulid can point with pride to her two native sons who gave the barangay and the town as well, unprecedented fame of honor. Patricio Firmeza who twice became captain of the town (1873-74) and (1885-86) and Conrado Norada who became the Provincial Executive of Iloilo from 1970- to March 1986.
In the 1940's until the World War II had ended, the place celebrated its fiesta every June 24 in honor of St. John the Baptist. Believing that the Holy Family served the barangay, that no one was killed or died in the war, the people decided to change their patron saint to the Holy Family whose feast is suppoded to be celebrated in the last week of December to first of January.
For the reason that most of the barangay residents during that time goes to work to other places to harvest rice, it was agreed that the fiesta would be celebrated in the month of February when all the residents had gone back home. Starting in the year 1995 in accordance to the order of the church authorities, the barangay celebrated its annual fiesta every 29th of December.
The place is primarily agricultural but the people are engaged in other industries like fishing and cattle, hog, goat and poultry raising.
