Brief History

In the late 1800 as no definite and official record were to be found and only related elders from decade more than a century ago the barangay was still a vast forest thereby each family has to settle in their respective form which they cleared and live far apart from other families. According to history there were three leaders of the barangay namely: Tan Oming, Tan Beyong and Tan Sevio.

One day, the three leaders called all the inhabitants for a meeting to agree on what name to give to their place. The community has to choose among the name of the three saints, San Gabriel, San Miguel and San Rafael. Majority of the people chooses San Rafael as the name of their barangay. The leaders also commanded the families to live closer as they are already a community.

So everyone in compliance to the order, left their homes in hinterlands and build another house in cluster for they believe that by living closer to one another will mean protection and is a formative factor for unity and cooperatiion.

From then succession of leaders took place from Cabeza to Tan and Tenyente del Barrio and lately Barangay Captain or Punong Barangay.
