5. Legend

The name of the barrio (DALIG) was derived from a body of water from a river nearby (Kawong River). The body of water was so deep and calm that the people of the place called it Dalig. This body of water was for a long time the source of water supply of the barrio folks.

6. Date of historical sites, structures and buildings

School buildings - The first school building was a nipa hut put up with the help of the barrio people in 1938 on the lot donated by Mr. Melecio Arceo, former Asst. Provincial Treasurer.

Next building was constructed during the term of Congressman N. Babao. This was dilapidated and demolished thru Municipal Bidding (1970). The present pre-fab school building (Marcos type) was put up in 1968.
