Old folks say Siaton was founded on the shore between Canaway and Siaton Rivers by one of the ten "datus" who migrated from Borneo with Datu Puti and Datu Sumakwel. The name is said to derive from a certain native called "Aton", who was believed to possess mysterious powers.

The Siaton Parish was instituted in 1848, under the patronage of St. Nicholas de Bari. The fiesta highlight is a ritual of pagan provenance, the Inagta, featuring dark-painted performers imitating the movements of certain wildlife.

The Bonbonon range, which has undergone massive greening, supplements the town's economy with vast sugarcane plantations and agro-forestry.

Barrio Casala-an was the seat of the 6th District Civil Government during World War II. In Bonbonon Point, also referred to by the natives as Pirate's Cove, was the site of the PC Coastal Patrol's first calamity on February 7, 1942, when their boat was shelled and sunk by a Japanese destroyer.
