Barangay Baraoas Profile

History:

The people of the barangay say that the original name of the barangay is “Cabaroasan” because the place is almost covered with big trees and vines with swaying branches. When the Spaniards arrived, a group of Ilocanos led by Capo Siano went to see the chieftains, Capitan Dimas, an Igorot and they agreed to have the name of the place changed into “Baraoas”.
