Origin of the Municipality's Name

Upon hearing that a gobernadorcillo (the Spanish-era equivalent of a governor) is coming through the river from Cervantes, Ilocos Sur, the natives in present-day Manabo welcomed him with a landing pad made of bamboo and a feast of meat, fruit and wine. On his departure later, the natives were so enthusiastic in seeing him off that they overloaded the bamboo landing pad and collapsed, in which everyone shouted, "Manabo! Manabo!" The Spanish gobernadorcillo, amused with the event, named the place Manabo.
