Brief History of Angeles City

The city has its beginning from a clearing of Culiat, a woody


vine native to the area at that time, carried out by Spanish
settlers led by Don Angel Pantaleon de Miranda (then San Fernandos Capitan, equivalent to Municipal Mayor) and Doa
Rosalia de Jesus in 1796. But before this even took place, Aetas already lived in the area which was then named after the
woody vine. The clearing was planted to rice and sugar cane,
made into a new settlement and became a barrio of San Fernando for 33 years until December 8, 1829.
The political separation of Culiat was made possible by the
payment of Don Angel of the full amount required by law for
it to stand alone as a political unit. Payment was required because though the law then requires that there should be 500
taxpayers, Culiat at that time had only 160 taxpayers. But prior
to the granting of Culiats political division, petitions in 1812,
1822 and 1828 were made but were denied because the separation would cut the amount of tax collection in San Fenando. A fourth petition was made in 1829 by Don Angel with
his son-in-law, Dr. Mariano Henson, and the latters father, Don
Severino Henson. It is during this time and with payment made
for the political separation of Culiat, that Angeles was reborn.
Culiat was renamed El Pueblo de los Angeles (The Town of
Angels) in honor of its patron saints, Los Santos Angeles Custodios (The Holy Guardian Angels) and its founder , Don Angel. Angeles had 661 people, 151 houses and an area of 3,865
ha. when it received its first municipal charter. Its early barrios were Sto. Rosario (poblacion), Cutcut, Pampang, Pulung
Anunas, San Nicolas, San Jose and Amsic.

Prepared By:

In 1899, Angeles grew to prominence as it was made the seat


of Philippine government by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. It is thus
here that the first anniversary celebration of Philippine Independence after its proclamation a year earlier in Kawit, Cavite.
In January 1900, Gen. Frederick D. Grant organized the first U.S.
Civil Government in Angeles by appointing an alcalde or municipal mayor. This started the American colonization of Angeles highlighted by the encampment of the U.S. military forces
from 1902 until 1991. Barrio Talimundoc (now Lourdes Sur) became the site of the first U.S. army camp. This lasted about a
year until U.S. Pres. Theodore Roosevelt signed an executive
order establishing 7,700 acres (3,100 ha.) of land in Barrio Sapangbato as Fort Stotsenberg. The land area would later on
expand in 1908 to 156,204 acres (63,214 ha.)to become Clark
Air Base.
As Angeles is host of the base, the town therefore saw witness to what historians consider as one of the most destructive air raids in World War II. In December 8, 1941. Japanese
war planes dropped their bombs on Clarkfield and Angeles
destroying almost all American war planes and debilitating
Americas air power in the Far East.After World War II and following the declaration of Philippine Independence on July 4,
1946, the Philippine-American Base Agreement was signed in
March 14, 1947, allowing the U.S. to maintain territorial integrity
and sovereignty over Clark Air Base and Subic Naval Base for
the next 44 years.

Angeles not just transcended war but natural calamities


of various kinds. On October 7, 1871, a strong typhoon destroyed hundreds of houses. In 1918, the town went through
an influenza epidemic that took lives by the minute that the
dead were just dumped on carts and buried en masse, locust
infestation in 1939, and series of conflagration that gutted the
San Nicolas Public Market. Angeles was not spared from Mt.
Pinatubos wrath when it erupted in June 12 & 15 in 1991 which
created heavy ashfalls and lahar flows destroying properties,
claimed lives and displaced thousands of families. The event
led to the U.S. Air Force abandoning the base and ending U.S.
military presence in the city. As it was natural for any area to
lose vibrancy after a calamity, Angeles slid to depression for
a while. Yet this would not be long because soon as the city
had done its rebuilding and the revival of Clark, this time as an
economic zone, by the national government, the citys luster
sprung back to life. But, while it has already passed through
turbulence, the city continues to face the challenges of development and time. How it chooses to address these will
shape what will become of the city and its people and how
the world will come to see it.

Holy Rosary Parish Church. It was


only constructed in 1910, but on
its site once stood the so-called
convent, built in 1873 as an
annex to the church. From August 16, 1900 until October 1902,
the convento was used by the
U.S. Army as a military hospital, and
later on as troop barracks.

Bale Herencia

- Located on the
corner of Lakandula Street and Sto.
Rosario Street. It was built in 1860
by carpenters from Vigan, Ilocos
Sur. Local lore has it that the imposing house was built by Fr. Guillermo Masnou, O.S.A., a parish
priest of Angeles. Restoration was
started in 1988 by its new owner, Mr.
Jose G. Paras Jr. and currently serves
as a banquet hall for various occasions.
On its first level are different business
establishments leasing spaces.

Dayrit Front Yard

- Located
at the right side of the Apu Chapel. It was once a public square
during the U.S. regime, where U.S.
Army Private George Raymond
was executed for desertion.

Historical Spots
Founders House -

Located
along Sto. Rosario Street in the
old section of Angeles. It is the
oldest structure and best preserved ancestral house in the
city. Don Angelo Pantaleon de
Miranda built the house in 1824.

This is now the Angeles Rehab Center located in front


of Nepo Mall, along Sto. Rosario
Street. It was built sometime in
the 1800s to serve as the depository of the costly silver-plated
floats used in the towns several
religious processions. During the
American regime, the U.S. military used the building for a variety
of purposes, such as a film exchange
and
a jail for errant U.S. soldiers. From 1970s to
early 1980s, the building served as the citys main post office.

The Pamintuan Mansion -

The construction of this


house was started around 1890 by Don Mariano Pamintuan. In
the late 1898 when the revolutionary army occupied Angeles, Gen. Venancio Concepcion used the house as his headquarters. A few months later in April 1899, Gen. Antonio Luna
utilized it as the general headquarters of the First Filipino Army.
On May 27, 1899, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo moved in and served it
as the Presidential Residence, as well as
his headquarters. On June 12, 1899,
Pres. Aguinaldo ordered a grand
celebration and parade on the
first anniversary of Philippine
Independence. The parade
was led by Gen. Gregorio del
Pilar and passed by the Pamintuan Mansion where Pres.
Aguinaldo was watching from
a second storey window, waving the original Philippine flag.

Transportation
Angeles City is only about 45 minutes drive away from Manila
via North Luzon Expressway. Buses from Manila going to Angeles
are aplenty. This is aside from those going to other destinations in
the north and which could easily drop-off along the way those
going to the city. From the neighboring towns, City of San Fernando and Dau, Mabalacat, one could ride on jeepneys to go
to Angeles City. These are the world-famous Philippine Jeepneys
which evolved from war vintage jeeps and could comfortably
seat 16 to 20 passengers. Modes of transportation inside the city
are varied jeepneys, tricycles and horse-driven carriages called
calesas. The jeepneys plying the inside city limit are color coded
according to their routes for easier identification, especially for
those who are new to the city
