History of Angeles City, Philippines

source: Verbatim from The LGU of Angeles City, Philippines

The transition of Angeles from a jungle clearing to a barrio, to a town, and finally to a city took one hundred sixty eight (168) years; and in all that time, it has survived locusts infestations, conflagrations, wars, epidemics, volcanic eruptions and typhoons to become one of the fast rising cities in the country.

Culiat, as Angeles was known in the early times was a barrio of San Fernando for thirty three (33) years. It became a separate town one hundred thirty five (135) years later. It was just any other backward town until the early fifties when it picked up to rise as a progressive municipality.

It was in 1796, when the Captain (Municipal Mayor) of San Fernando, Don Angel Pantaleon de Miranda, together with his wife, Doña Rosalia de Jesus and followers moved on foot towards north. They made extensive clearing to be called Culiat, after the vines then abundant around.

Doña Rosalia supervised the clearing until her husband, Don Angel returned from Military Service in 1811. He was a Captain of the Manila Hussers Squadron.

Don Angel built his house with light materials at the Northwest corner of the intersection of Sapangbalen and the road going towards the town of Porac which later was donated to the Roman Catholic Church as the first cemetery made known as the “Capong Santong Matua” now the site where the Nepomuceno Colisium is situated.

Barrio Culiat was already a town except in name in 1812 with the rise of new barrios like Sto. Cristo (as the poblacion or town proper), Cutcut, Pampang, and Pulung Anunas.

On February 11, 1829, Don Angel filed aa petition for the segregation of Culiat from San Fernando, followed by another petition within the same year jointly signed by Don Angel, his son-in-law, Dr. Mariano Henson and the latter’s father Severino Henson.

It was not however, until December 8, 1829, that Culiat was officially recognized as an independent town, inspite of the fact that it only had a population of six hundred sixty one (661) people. It steadily increased however in 1991, due to the massive destruction brought about by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in June 1991 and the withdrawal of Americans from Clark Air Base in November 1991, decreased from the two hundred thirty six thousand six hundred sixty five (236, 665) NSO census made in June 1990, to two hundred six thousand eight hundred thirty six (206,836) CPDO census in 1992. The town was renamed Angeles, in honor of its founder and titular saint, “Los Santos Angeles Custodios” (The Holy Guardian Angel). Much of the credit for the granting of the petition however, must be conferred upon the founder’s son-in-law, Dr. Mariano Henson who actually handled the negotiations.

On May 7, 1899, Gen Emilio Aguinaldo made Angeles the seat of the Philippine Government. A field mass was held in his honor. The first anniversary celebration of the Philippine Independence proclaimed a year earlier in Kawit, Cavite was held in Angeles in June 12, 1899. It was highlighted with a parade led by the youngest ever Filipino General, Gregorio del Pilar, and Manuel Tinio. It was viewed by Gen. Aguinaldo from the Pamintuan residence (restored recently to its original, now houses the Central Bank Clearing Office, the Presidential Palace at that time.

During Aguinaldo’s stay in Angeles, Manuel L. Quezon, then a member of the General’s Staff, stayed in the house of a certain Don Lorenzo Sanchez (then just across the Pamintuan residence). Aguinaldo’s sojourn was short however, for in July of this same year, he transferred his government to Tarlac, following its occupation by the American Forces. On January1, 1900, Gen. Frederick D. Grant organized the first U.S. Civil Government by appointing an Alcalde.

By October of 1902, the U.S. Army in Angeles established its Camp at Talimundoc (now Lourdes Sur) near the Angeles Railroad Station. On the latter part of the following year, they moved far north to a place called Mangga and Sapangbato which was later called Fort Stotsenberg, named after Colonel Jon Stotsenberg who died in Plaridel, Bulacan, during an encounter with the soldiers of General Aguinaldo. Moreover, in 1919, Angeleños were startled to see military planes flying over Angeles for the first time, taking off from a new airfield constructed beside Fort Stotsenberg and which later until recently was known as Clark Air Base, then the largest American Military installation outside Mainland America.

War historians considered the bombing of Clark Air Base on December 8, 1941 as one of the most destructive air raids in World War II because almost all the American war planes were wrecked to the ground. On the early morning of the New Year’s Day of 1942, the first Japanese troops entered the town, occupying it up to January 1945.

Unwanted and unfortunate events have formed part of history; and Angeles is no exception. On October 7, 1871, a strong typhoon destroyed hundreds of houses and thousands of colorful lantern and paper castles made on order by the then Mayor Mariano Vicente Henson in preparation of the forthcoming feast of “La Naval” and “Fiesta ng Apo”. Furthermore, the town as well as the whole Pampanga was infested by locusts in the year 1939. The calamity that befell the town, which old folks could still vividly recall, was the influenza epidemic in 1918. The dead were just being dumped in carabao carts and buried later en masse. Since the epidemic was claiming lives almost by the minute, even the tolling of the church bells for the dead was suppressed. The first conflagration recorded was one that razed down the entire public market in 1885. The market was rebuilt, only to be gutted down again in 1897 and several times more in later years until the latest on January 19, 1982, considered the biggest and costly causing the loss of more than P20 million worth of property. In the early morning of June 12, 1991, after sleeping for about 600 years, the erstwhile majestic and calm Mt. Pinatubo in proper, suddenly burst into a gigantic mushroom-shaped explosion described as the biggest in the world this century. Its worst effect however, hit the city on June 15. Millions of pesos worth of properties were destroyed by heavy ashfall and cascading mudflow. Thousands of families either fled or lost their houses. A score of people also their lives.

Nearby Clark Air Base, much closer to the erupting volcano suffered more destruction. There were no casualties reported inside Clark since two days before the initial eruption, its personnel were all able to evacuate to Subic. The eruption of Mt. Pinatubo forced the hand of the US to prematurely abandon its military installation at Clark Air Force Base. This is in addition to the vetoing in 1991 of the extension of the Laurel Langley Act which allows the presence of of US military forces on Philippine territory by the Philippine Senate. Thus ending the long chapter of Filipino-American relations in the history of Angeles City.

On the other hand, it was not always misfortune that was part of Angeles history. In other words, if there were the bad times, there were also the good times. Likewise, the rainy days were also sprinkled with dry and sunny days. And what makes many a heart happy, but tales of romance.

An interesting episode in the history of Angeles even for future perusal by analyst and researchers was the introduction of lanzones in this place. The planting of the first lanzones tree played a rather significant role in a romantic interlude which culminated in the intermarriage of a Nepomuceno from Lucban, Tayabas (now Quezon Province) with the Henson in Angeles. It is said that it was during the wooing stage, that the lovesmitten Pio Rafael Nepomuceno presented to Agustina a gift, the ffirst lanzones tree to be planted in Angeles soil, with the “Romeo” volunteering to plant the tree himself. The knowledge that lanzones were scarce in Pampanga, prompted Mr. Nepomuceno to do what he did. Today, lanzones trees abound in Sto. Entierro and Sto. Rosario Streets, besides perhaps other trees growing in other parts of the city.

Through the years, although Fort Stotsenberg (later Clark Air Base) continued to expand, Angeles despite its proximity to the American Camp, did not progress as fast, and was just like any ordinary town. It was only in 1949 that Angeles reached the take off stage for progress was so tremendous that even as a town, it was already considered by many as a city.

On January 1, 1964, Angeles was finally inaugurated as a chartered city under Republic Act. No. 3700. It was Rafael del Rosario’s brainchild that Angeles became a city. He gained the distinctions of being the last Town Mayor and at the same time, the first City Mayor of Angeles. He was assisted in the preparation of the City Chapter by Atty. Enrique Tayag, a prominent resident of the town. Then Congresswoman Juanita L. Nepomuceno of the first district of Pampanga sponsored the bill in Congress and approved by then President Diosdado Macapagal, a province mate.

Present day observers considered the effects of the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo and the withdrawal of American Military personnel from Clark Air Base as telling blows to its economy. Yet it cannot be denied that it is innate in the native Angeleños to survive the tests of time such as conflagrations, typhoons, and volcanic eruption and political rebuffs.

Today, the heavy flow of vehicles and people in the city proper is one clear indication of the calamity befallen city’s re directed efforts towards its physical and economic recovery.

Natural Resources of Angeles City, 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.

Binay: Broadcasters to have own homes

By Reynaldo G. Navales

ANGELES CITY -- Broadcasters will have more good news to relay after they get their own houses.

This was the statement of Vice President Jejomar Binay after the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Pag-Ibig Fund and the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) Tuesday night.

"Malamang ay dadami na ang masasayang ulat ng mga broadcaster nating kasamahan kapag nagkaroon na sila ng sariling bahay," Binay, chair of the Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees, said during the signing.

Binay added that he was aware of the plight of many broadcasters and journalists who do not have their own homes. "It is for this reason that I instructed Pag-Ibig to explore a partnership with KBP to help address some of your members’ housing needs. I understand that the Pag-Ibig Home Lending Programs have already been presented to you in one of the meetings between KBP and Pag-Ibig regarding the matter."

"I have been regularly apprised of the developments of your meetings. In fact, I have been informed of the proposal to implement a housing project called 'Broadcaster’s Village," said Binay.

While the proposal for the "Broadcaster's Village" was a good long-term project, said Binay, he also discussed with Pag-Ibig President Darlene Berberabe the need for more immediate measures to provide houses.

"And we can definitely do that through Pag-Ibig’s Home Matching Program. For example, if members of one KBP chapter wish to buy housing units in a particular area, the Business Development Sector of Pag-Ibig will coordinate with our partner-developers that have existing projects in that location so we can find available units that matches their needs and capacity to pay.”

“The acquisition of these housing units will be through Pag-Ibig housing loan. And as a value-added service, the Business Development Sector may even work out for discounts from our accredited developers," the Vice President said.

He added that such a scheme would be a win-win situation for the developers, Pag-Ibig, and the members themselves.

"The Home Matching Program can also be done through Pag-Ibig's inventory of acquired properties. It actually works in a simple way. A Pag-Ibig accredited contractor renovates the acquired property chosen by the borrower to make it move-in ready. Once it is done, the borrower simply moves in hassle-free," he also said.

Binay also guaranteed that housing units acquired under this scheme is affordable.

According to Binay, 96 percent of Pag-Ibig's acquired properties inventory have a price range of P172,000 to P737,000. The lowest monthly amortization rate is P1,501.

"Pag-IBIG has about 72,000 acquired properties located in different areas across the country. While not all of these are ready for disposition, I can assure you that there are enough units in our inventory to choose from. In the National Capital Region alone, 21,000 units are available for disposition," he said.

Binay also related the success of members of transport groups that also entered into an agreement with Pag-IBIG in 2011.

"Halimbawa po, yung isang miyembro ng asosasyon ng drayber ng UV Express na dating nangungupahan ng P2,000 kada buwan, ngayon po ay may sariling bahay na at hinuhulugan niya ito ng P2,500 kada buwan, hindi malayo doon sa binabayaran niya noong nangungupahan pa sila ng kanyang pamilya," Binay said.

Binay also revealed that there is an existing program for minimum-wage earners where they can avail of a loan from P450,000-P750,000, with interest rates ranging from as low as 4.5 percent to 6.5 percent, depending on the income of the borrower.

“Para naman po sa gusto ng malaking bahay, nagpapautang po ang Pag-Ibig ng hanggang P6-million basta lamang matugunan ng isang qualified borrower ang lahat ng kinakailangan. Market competitive rin ang interest rates namin dito dahil 6.985 percent lang ang pinakamababang interes para sa three-year fixed pricing period," he added.

Binay added that the agency has also partnered with different sectors such as transport groups, employers, and local government units for the housing needs of their beneficiaries.

"We acknowledge that the need for housing is not only confined to the informal settlers – the reason we introduced and implemented innovative programs that cut across all sectors of our society," said the Vice President.

"At ngayon po, hindi na naghihintay ang Pag-Ibig na may lumapit sa aming tanggapan para magtanong patungkol sa mga programang pabahay. Kapag nalaman namin na may pangangailangan sa pabahay ang isang grupo, kami na mismo ang nakikipag-ugnayan sa kanila," Binay also said.

Under the MOU, Pag-Ibig will provide KBP with available corporate-wide housing inventories on a regular basis, which will serve as ready inventories for KBP Member Network-employees.

It will also provide housing loan counseling to prospective KBP Member Network-employee borrowers and assist in the initial housing loan documentation.

As well, it will approve housing loan applications of KBP Member Network-employees qualified under existing Pag-Ibig Fund policies and guidelines and enter into a Collection Servicing Agreement between Pag-IBIG Fund and KBP Member Networks for the collection of the monthly amortization and payment of loan of the beneficiaries.

It will also provide the KBP with other home financing schemes subject to the existing guidelines of Pag-Ibig Fund.

Our Fund Raiser

Zamboanga.com does not get any donations from anyone so we have to come up with our own fund raising. We affiliated ourselves with some commercial online stores to market their products here. We in return get a commission on sales made. Your patronage will be greatly appreciated.
