History

During the past, the first group of people who lived in this terrain area were of Malay ancestors. They settled in this place because of the abundance of pineapple which grew locally that almost covered the whole area. Then, they called the area as “Sitio Kadul-dulan” but others called it as “Sitio Kabatingan”. However, because of its terrain area wherein they lived in a high land, water became their major problem especially during summer. Water was being sold every dry season. But, the abundance of pineapple offers a great help for their daily food which became a solution for their need of enough supply of water for their daily activities.

Not so long a time when they discovered an open well, situated beside the pineapple plants, where the natives used to fetch water for their daily living. Whereas, during dry season, unlike most of open wells in the area dries-up, it (open well) did not dries-up, yet, it could still cater to the needs of the residents. More families moved and stay in this area, thus, population increased. Hence, they decided to name their “place of pineapple” as “Kapinyahan”. Later, they named their place similar to the name of the plants found common in their place called “pineapple” or “Pinya” in dialect and lately spelled as “Piña” due to the influence of Spaniards.
