Brief History

Tumagboc is the sister barangay of Ticdalan. They have one patron, Nuestra Sra. de Salvacion, whose feast is celebrated in the month of April.

This place lies near the junction of Tumagboc River and Ticdalan Creek, the meeting point of which is called tumagbo in the dialect. This is how the barangay got its name.

During the revolution against Spain, young men from this barangay were conscripted to fight for Mother Spain. They called themselves voluntarios. Later on, however, these voluntarios turned revolutionarios and fought against the Spaniards. One of these revolutionarios was Vicente Flores, the father of Felicula Nalumen whose husband Severino "Binong" Nalumen was the first barrio teniente of Tumagboc who served for nineteen years from 1927-1946.

Other heads were Gavino Nies (1947-1948), Falvio Mondejar (1949-1951), Anselmo Fallacorina (1952-1955), Natividad Muyong (1960-1963) and Geronimo Naragdao (1956-1959) and (1964-1967). Gavino Nies came back to head the barrio (1968-1979). Loreto Mosote, Rodolfo Nacis (1991-1997) and Francisco Nalumen (1997-present.)


The barangay officials of Barangay Tumagboc visualized a more developed, more clean and green and peaceful Barangay Tumagboc. Establishing a comprehensive, continual and paralleled development programs will help in realizing our mission. The development programs and projects were carefully planned, considered and termed, if not to answer directly but could lessen the problems, issues and futuristic concerns.
