BARANGAY QUINAVITE

BRIEF HISTORY
 Quinavite is one of the oldest barrio in the municipality of Bauang. On the southern boundary and along the McArthur Highway there was a cemented bridge which was constructed. That was how the barangay got its name.
The bridge was long been constructed by the residence under the direct supervision of the Spanish colonial government. Since the materials were made of dried bricks (ladrillo), lime, sugar, dye and tree saps the combination was called “Cabite”. So when it was finished the people called it “Rangtay” a Cabite or Kabite a Rangtay. When it was separated, it was then called barrio Quinavite.
Barangay Dili and Disso-or was once part of Barangay Quinavite.

BARANGAY PUGO

BRIEF HISTORY
 Old town folks say that ages ago, a flock of more than a thousand quails lived together in this place. This place still has no given name though there were already people living here.
There was once a foreigner who happened to visit this place. He asked the Filipino the name at the same time pointing at this place. The Filipino, who cannot fully understand foreign language and knowing that the foreigner was pointing at the quail birds answered “pugo”, the name of the birds. Thinking that the foreigner’s query was answered, the foreigner then called this place PUGO. From that time on, this place was called PUGO.

 

BARANGAY TABERNA

BRIEF HISTORY
 It derived its name from the Spanish word “Tavern” which means a guest house with a bar. As related by the elders who were interviewed, land area of Taberna occupies more than 500 meters as of the present in the west until the sea took it over. Along the seashore stretches a road that interconnects the adjacent Barangay Pugo in the south and Barangay Baccuit Sur in the north. An inter loop can be seen before the road moves to the north. There was a “tarcena” which was the only establishment made of bamboos and coconut leaves along the seashore. It is in the “tarcena” that they buy or barter their trade. Fishing is the major economic livelihood of the people then.
