HISTORY OF THE BARANGAY

The word Labangon comes from the root word “Labangon” which means “to cross” . Early setters found the place difficult to cross because of the river that separate Labangon from San Nicolas. The only way to reach Labangon was to cross the river with a bamboo raft.

It was Labangon, particularly on the once sugarcane field owned by Jacinto Pacaña, where the plans for the Katipunan uprising in Cebu during the Spanish rule was mapped out. It was also in the same barangay exactly on Veleriano Weyler St. now Tres De Abril, where Leon Kilat led an uprising against the Spaniards on 03 April 1898.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

Hon. Victor M. Buendia envisions Labangon to be the friendliest, most accommodating, most efficient, and most responsive barangay in Cebu City, under his term.


Today, one does not have to maneuver a bamboo raft to get to Labangon. Wide and paved concrete roads lead people to its different areas. Business establishment that lined up on the streets give proof that Labangon is now a very booming barangay.

The street along Katipunan, where the public market is located, is considered the hub of commerce and trade in the barangay. Other areas are also locations for specialized industry like furniture-making, shellcraft, and woodcraft, to name a few. The presence of giant firms like Covergys, a BPO company, provides job opportunities to the locals.
