Brief Origin of Barangay Name


The present Catholic Mission site of Itogon was once called “Balingway,” now Poblacion. But before it came to existence, the church site was a wilderness, abundant with fresh water, fishes, games, and “Balingway” trees. These trees are sturdy looking with long vines drooping and curled around its branches. They called then the place “BALINGWAY” after a name balingway tree specie abounded in the place.

During the Spanish colonization in 1880s, the Spaniards wanted to establish their civil government in Balingway, but their officials were scared since they have heard of many stories of encounters between the kinship group of Boa, Antamok, and Tuding with the Kastila. Nonetheless, the Spaniards wanted to befriend and offer a CAPITAN position to the Balingway people. Right away, the different Chiefs; Shomingkis, Budong, Balbines, Tiangao and Maingpis assigned Codeng, who is living in Balingway and one of their field leader to accept the Spaniards’ of fer. Without hesitation, Codeng then accepted the offer and became the first Capitan of the new Spanish Pueblo or Codeng del Puelbo de Itogon.


In the 1990s, the Americans established controlin Balingway, henceforth, officially named as Poblacion, although, in record, it is now called Itogon
