History

There was a barely inhabited hinterland popularly called “kulambog”, surrounded by three barangays namely: Supang, New Poblacion and Mabini, where houses are afar and people seldom meet. Snakes and dangerous reptiles abound the place. There were even crocodiles in the swamps.

When an Engineering Brigade of the American Army led by Lt. Douglas McArthur arrived, many changes took place. The corps of engineers constructed roads from Sto. Rosario going to their military headquarters where they stayed in Barangay Supang. When the whole area was cleared, families gradually built their houses in sitio kulambog. There was a soldier whose family name was McLain who regularly roam around the sitio and people became accustomed with his presence. Hence, every time they meet him, they greeted him “Good Morning Mr. McLain!” People became friendly with the soldier because of his kindness and jovial personality. His popularity widely spread and residents in their neighboring barangays started to call the place “McLain” instead of Kulambog.
