Historical Background of Calamba


Cultural Development

 
 

    Calamba was originally called “Solinog”, named after a deep bankrill located at the eastern portion of the poblacion where Langaran River flows. Its name was later changed to CALAMBA by the Municipal Council of Plaridel after the Filipino patriot’s birthplace. It was formerly part of the municipal territory of Plaridel, Misamis Occidental. Being the fastest growing barrio, it was separated from the Municipality of Plaridel and became independent on February 1, 1948, under Executive Order No. 85 series of 1947 by the late President of the Philippines, His Excellency Manuel A. Roxas. It was inaugurated into a municipality on February 14, 1948.

 
 

    The “Subanos” were the aborigines of the municipality of Calamba, Misamis, Occidental. They had the practice of clearing certain areas one after the other. Those cleared areas were later abandoned and were easily acquired by the new settlers coming from the Visayas and some parts of Mindanao.
