A Brief History___________________________

The origin of the name Sibulan is more historical than mythical. The story goes that during the Spanish occupation of the Philippines, a group of Spaniards wandered around the area. They met several women carrying bamboo tubes, tools they used to fetch water from the springs. The Spaniards asked the women the name of the place. None of the women understood Spanish, so communication failed rather miserably. The women took it to mean the Spaniards were asking them the source of the water they were fetching, so they replied, "Sibuls", meaning "spring". Noting the abundance of springs in the area, the Spaniards named it the Land of Sibuls or land of numerous springs. As the years went by, influence of time and elements of change brought the name of the place modified to its present name, SIBULAN.

In 1838, Sibulan became a Parish under the secular order. Then in 1856, the parish was taken over by a regular church priest.

In 1910, Sibulan had its first set of municipal government officials when it became a municipality. Its creation was in accordance with Act No. 82, dated January 31, 1910 of the Philippine Commission relative to the creation of municipal governments in the country. The first appointed president (municipal mayor) was Macario Literal.
