Brief History

Banbanan which took its name from banban tress, is a thriving community with a market day every Thursday, 7 kilometers inland from the poblacion. It is accessible to transportation throughout the year. It is not known when this place was established. It is of record, however, that in 1823, a certain Mama Mian built the first pasaka or irrigation system in that place. Today, this pasaka still works serving not only Banbanan but also the neighboring barangays or Aguiauan, Cubay and Tan-agan.

Several barrio leader took turns in heading this place. These were Gregorio Nacisvalencia, Francisco Fedrequilan, Apias Nacisvalencia, Serapio Facon, Jose Faicol, Leoncio Fedrequilan (1940-1941), Eusebio Mondana (1946-1951), Bartolome Neponcio (1952-1955), Luis Famillaran (1956-1963) and Urbano Noblezada (1942-1945) and (1964-1967). Since 1968, this place has been headed by Barangay Captain Benito Monreal.

Banbanan has no barrio school it being adjacent to Aguiauan where there is a complete elementary and high school. It observes its barangay fiesta every January.

Rogelio Famatid and Mansueto Napilay, Philippine Navy, Olympic and Asian Wrestlers of the Philippines, both hail from this place.
