BARANGAY PARO-ON


Brief History

In 16th Century, Barangay Paro-on was called Muro Cleto. It is because the family living in this place were clan of Cleto and these were the following: Maulit family, Nalagon Family, Monteas family, Muesco family, Mujal family and Fajurano family.

As years go by, there was once a Tagalog who came and asked "Saan paroon and daang ito?" (Where is this trail heading to?) But Cabesa Cleto did not understand what the man says. He just remembered the word "paroon ito" so he changed Muro Cleto into Paroon. That was how Paroon got its name.

Cabesa Ceto was the first Cabesa de Barrio. He was succeeded by Agustin Muhat then Herminigildo Nalagon who has the longest tem as Teniente de Barrio who served for 30 years from 1920-1959 followed by Vicente Napasindayao (1960-1963), Antonio Fajurano (1964-1971), Federico Muzones (1972-1989), Gloria Muzones (1989-1992), Gina Mooc (1993-1995), Florita Miague (1996-2002). The present Punong Barabgat is Roger Fajardo.

The main products of Barangay Paroon are rice and corn and also bamboo products like "tabungos" and "amakan". Before, Paroon is known for sugar based delicacy like "lasaw", "butong-butong" and "pinasugbo"..
