History of Talibon, Bohol
« on: June 20, 2007, 07:30:04 AM »
This progressive town lies on the northwestern coast of Bohol 114.8 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. It was established in 1830. Before that, Talibon was a part of Inabanga.

No records are available to show the origin of the town but old folks claimed that the place got its name from 'talibong,' an ancient spear which they used for mining gold. Later on the letter "g" was dropped so the name Talibon prevailed.

During World War II a guerilla force was organized which took control and authority of Talibon. The force maintained peace and order in the town and restored for a time the normal functions of the municipal government. The then Senator Carlos P. Garcia, later President of the Philippines, acted as their High Adviser. When Japanese soldiers occupied Bohol their first act was to dispatch a patrol to capture Carlos P. Garcia, but he narrowly escaped to Leyte in a sailboat together with his family. Failing to capture Garcia the Japanese soldiers burned the Garcia house and subjected to severe torture volunteer guard Cesario Avergonzado for giving them the wrong direction. That was July 4, 1942.(the provincial government file)

If Talibon was once part of Inabanga, so Buenavista and Getafe also were?

I believe the article of Mike is more accurate because during the Spanish Era, Talibon was part of Inabanga, a metal mining town famous for its ancient blades. A famous quote in Inabangga says "During Fiestas, you can find only swords & knives in the market".

Below is a talibon sword which was used by the famous Francisco Dagohoy or Francisco Sendrijas.
