History

During the past, the natives called their place as “Tabao”– where a wide plantation of Sweet potato in which the variety is commonly called Tabao.

On the other hand, during the Spanish period, while Nicolas or “Lolo Colas”, as commonly called by the natives was attending his wide plantation of sweet potato, a Spaniard passed by and asked him if what is the name of the crop, he immediately answered, “Nicolas”, for he thought that the stranger (Spaniard) asked for his name. Later on, the Spaniards taught religion among the residents. They thought that the name of the place was Nicolas, so, they brought an image of a saint “SAN NICOLAS DE TOLENTINO”to be the patron of the barangay. However, even though the place had its new name, yet, it is popularly called by the commons as “Tabao”.

Presently, San Nicolas is compost of seven (7) purok or sitio, each headed by a barangay kagawad.

Purok Kuatro also known as “Sitio Serum” and Purok Cinco or “Sitio Serum Bukid”. These two purok had a legendary story as told by their “Katigulangan”. According to them, every time that sunset came, a white lady appeared and frightened the residents hence it was called “Serum”. Since then, no one passes that sitio every sunset or “SE-RUM” time.

Another sitio was called Purok Sies (6) or “Sitio Buga” because it has a unique color of the stones which their grandparents or “Katigulangan” called it “Buga”.

Furthermore, Purok Tres (3), also known as “Sitio Vinagrehill”. This sitio was named after a vinegar and a hilly place when from those time until the 19th century, in this area, there were many coconut trees producing “tuba” being preserved in an “antique jars” to become “vinegars”.

Moreover, Purok Siete (7) or commonly called “Sitio Highway” because it is situated along the highway; while Purok Dos (2) commonly called “Sitio Proper” where the plaza and most of the   barangay’s infrastructures are located.

From then on, Barangay San Nicolas is celebrating its Annual Fiesta every Second Week of September while the Holy Mass is held every 10th day of September in honor of Patron Saint San Nicolas De Tolentino.
