History of Magalang, Pampanga, Philippines

article copied verbatim from: http://eksite.com/

An original settlement named Magalang was located farther north, in Macapsa; due to its proximity to Cuayan and Maisac Rivers which frequently flooded it, the people transferred to San Bartolome, which turned out to have worse flooding caused by the Parua River (now Sacobia-Bamban River).

Magalang's principales, namely the Suing, Cortez, Pineda and Luciano families, decided to divide the town into two: some families moved north of the river to a placed called Sto. Niño, which they renamed Concepcion; the other families remained in San Bartolome and retained the name Magalang. On September 22, 1858, floods transformed Magalang into a lake.

The town was transferred once again, this time to present site, farther south. San Bartolome, the old Magalang site, came to be known as 'Balen Melacuan' (abandoned town) and is now a barrio of Concepcion; Magalang's present site is in Talimundoc or San Pedro, which is why the complete name of the town is San Pedro de Magalang (although its patron saint remains to be San Bartolome, whose feast day is August 24).

The town was formally established on December 24, 1863. Some scholars theorize that the first settlers of Magalang were migrants from a village in Indonesia called 'Magelang,' which was also located at the foot of a volcano that resembled Mount Arayat. In Bergano's dictionary, 'magalang' was an ancient Kapampangan word for abundance.

Natural Resources of Magalang, Pampanga, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.


Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
