Kasaysayan[usba | edit source]
The town bears the name in memory of the beleaguered times its settlers suffered untold difficulties during Moro pillages. Their settlement has first located near coastline where there were many Aguho trees. Consequently, the village became known as “Aguho”.
Time after time, pirate assaults forced the people to evacuate to safer places. Even as they thought they were already out of danger, marauders would still besiege their colony. The inhabitants had to move further inland and to the hills.
When the Spaniards came and secured the place, the inhabitants changed the name of their village to “Tabogon”, a vernacular, meaning, “to be driven away”. Tabogon was formally founded in 1827. In 1877, of fifty years later, the townsite was transferred to its current location. Thus, the village once known as “Aguho” and “Tabogon” was now called “Daantabogon”.
In time, a church, a convent, a school, abelfry and a watchtower were built in Daantabogon through free labor of inhabitants. Unfortunately, these were eventually destroyed, and only their ruins stand to storify the inhabitants’ challenging past.
The first “Capitan Municipal” was Gaspar Monteron, the root of the clan Monteron, Montellano, Hortellano and Garcia. Capitan Agustin Regis, chosen as the sixth municipal capitan, caused the transfer of the town where Tabogon is now located.
