Barangay: BOLAOEN                        Municipality/City: URDANETA
Province: PANGASINAN                     Region: I



     This Farmer's country was formerly  a sitio of Barangay Cabuloan.
During the  administration of  Pangasinan Governor the Hon. Francisco 
Duque, and through the initiative of Municipal and Barangay Officials,
she firmly  established  as  a  Barangay Lieutenant then was the late
Domingo B. Mamaclay Sr.

     And  for  a  little trivia: Did you know that the present Punong
Barangay CESAR M. LUCENA had served the Barangay first as a CVO chief,
then  tackled  the job of a Councilman or a Kagawad. Now he has taken
the top post.

     BOLAOEN was the name given her. It was taken a big tropical tree
called  "Molawin" which was found in abundance in the place. The term
molawin  in  Pangasinense is Bolaoen a sturdy tree (Sagat in Ilocano).
It was the name she carried from a sitio until now.

     The Bautista,Mamaclays,Estiokos,Locquiaos and  Arqueros were the 
first settlers of the place. The fertility  of  the soil and the vast 
land suited for the agriculture drew this families  from  the  Ilocos
Region. One  will  not  wonder  if  almost  or  more than half of the 
Barangay's  populations  carry these family names. On that, the prime
dialect spoken is Ilocano.
