History of Batuan Ilaya

There was once a Spaniard who came and inquired about this Barangay, it so happened that an old man was sitting under the shade of a big Batuan Tree. The Spaniard asked him in Spanish about the name of the place, however, the man did not understand him and think him that the Spaniard was asking about the name of the tree, the old man answered the Spaniard “BATUAN” from that time on, the place was called “BATUAN”.
