Brief History of Camanjac

During the period of our history when this place was a dense forest with few people, plenty of peculiar big birds called “manhac” populated the area. These types of birds had the characteristics of a rooster. The bird could also make a peculiar loud sound. During the organization and establishment of the barro, the prominent people of the town as well as casual visitors always made reference to the place as the place where so many mahac are. Camanjac was later adopted from the Visayan term “Camanhacan” as the name of the barangay.
