Barangay Ipil

Jagna, Bohol, Philippines
Home 


Origin of the Name

 The present and past name of the barrio was derived from the following story: Before the barrio Ipil was organized, there was a giant ipil tree growing in the village of  Sarabia. When the barrio was organized, the prominent people of the village named the barrio “Ipil” which is derived from the growing giant Ipil tree.

  These are the following sitios in the barangay: Sarabia, Sangngagan, Kalsada Porol (away from the national highway), and Cocob. The sitios in the barrio are considered depopulated as the young generations are going to Mindanao to find new homes there.

 During the Spanish occupation, the people loved the barrio peacefully and contentedly, but they were ignorant and illiterate because they were not properly educated.

 During the World War II, the Japanese soldiers burned two houses and three lives were lost. After the war, many houses were built again. The people in general were rehabilitated little by little.

            During the American occupation, many houses along the road were burned to ashes because the occupation soldiers believed that the people in Ipil were all insurrectos. But, when the civil government was established, the people were happy because the school was built for their children.
