History

During the Past, there was a place of hilly surrounding bounded by a long stretch of shoreline. On its slopes, there were many big (tall and short) trees of various species that grew around the area. However, a peculiar tree that stood tall and straight always catch the attention of the natives and the by-passers. There was a time when a stranger visited the area wherein he wanted to look for and buy some trees he needed in his work. As he arrived in the area, he looked at the surrounding trees. Suddenly, he was overwhelmed when he found his needed trees and immediately he asked the owner and negotiated to buy some of the said trees. Unknowingly, when the owner asked the stranger about the name of the said tree, then, he answered “Tan-ag”. Since then, the natives likely called their place as “Tan-ag”. Henceforth, the later generation simplify it in order that it would be easy for them to pronounce the word as “Tanag”.
