MUNICIPALITY OF BATUAN

Once a part of the municipality of Bilar, Batuan found its way into the family of towns in the province of Bohol on October 31, 1903, thru the efforts of some local leaders, chief of whom were Manuel Decasa, Alejandro Barril, Victor Tiongson, among others, who were put behind bars for strongly advocating the movement to cede Batuan from its mother town Bilar, and its subsequent creation as a distinct and separate town.This interior town used to be a barrio of Bilar during the Spanish regime and was called Lindogan. It was during the early years of American regime that this barrio was made into a municipality on October 31, 1903 by Act No. 370 of the Philippine Commission.
