A. HISTORICAL PROFILE

A-1:  History

     The name CABARUAN means  "REBUILT"  because  it  rose  from  the
ruins  of  the   Second  World War. The place became the battleground
between  the Japanese Imperial  Army  fighting  against  the American
soldiers  and  Filipino guerills. When  war  was over the  people who
evacuated  started  to  return  to  Cabaruan   and  cultivated  their
farm land. Cabaruan was one of the oldest barrio in Urdaneta City and
it was only during  the  martial  law  regime  on President Ferdinand
Marcos,   by  virtue  of  Presidential  decree  No.  557,  signed  in
September 21, 1974, that Cabaruan became a Barangay.
