Long time ago, there was an area where many small rocks were somehow scattered around but mostly along the roads. These small rocks were called by the natives in dialect as “Tagadtad”.

On the other hand, according to a native old man, the place was formerly a part of Barangay Nazaret was covered by a thick forest and considered as “forsaken” because of unusual incident that occurred- a dead human body brutally killed and parts were disconnected and chopped. They called it as “Tadtad”.  The residents then immediately leave the area and moved to another area. However, there was a rapid growth of population and Nazaret became crowded. Some of the families had nowhere to stay and found none other solution but to cut the trees and clear the “forsaken” area, built their houses and, lived in the said area. Lately, they forgot what had happened in the said place. Years had passed, the population within the area increased rapidly. Then, the residents gathered and decided to have a name of their own place. They remembered about the dead human body they called as “Tadtad” in dialect. Hence, the place where the “tadtad” was found simply called as “Tinadtaran” which became a sitio of Nazaret.

In 1965, the residents gathered again and organized themselves and became united. They planned to convert their sitio into a barangay. In order to send their children to school, they approached the former Mayor of Buenavista, Mayor Tayo and, requested to put up a school. The roof of the first school was made of a nipa and the wall was made of bamboo- which was finely stricken with a small axe and cut- the residents commonly called it as “Tadtad”.

The residents then made a petition to the Department of Registry in Manila through the Municipal Government of Buenavista to elevate the status of Sitio Tinadtaran into a barangay. In 1968, the department made a response for the approval of the request. Hence, Tinadtaran was officially declared as Barangay.
