BARANGAY OLANGO


Brief History

Olango in the Bacauan Valley is about 18 kilometers from the poblacion. It can be reached either by passing through Banbanan via Ticdalan and Pudpud or through Igbugo in the Oyungan Valley passing Bacolod and Cabunotan. This place is quite well known for its succulent thick chocolate.

In the past, this place was named San Eugenio, after Eugenio Paguntalan, head of the first family to settle there. The barrio then was a kilometer away from the present barrio site, called Ginbalayan or Imbalayan, where an old couple lived. Children addressed the old couple Olang which means grandparent.

It is said that one time, a Spaniard came to this place, meeting a child, he asked him the name of the place. Thinking that the Spaniard was asking where he was going, the child replied, "sa olang ko." Since then the place was called Olango, derived from "Olang Ko."

Irik-Ikan and Borac are the two sitios of Olango. The other sitio of Alimodias became a barrio after the war.

During the Filipino-American war, Olango was the hiding place of insurgents. Orbe and his family also sought refuge there during the Japanese occupation.
