HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Around 1931-1940, Calzada is a sitio of Barangay Tuburan. Sometime in the early part of 1960’s, it became a barangay because of the increase in its population. The first barangay lieutenant was Salvador Monasterial.

The name “Calzada” was given by the Spaniards which means “road”, and as time passed by, the people started calling the area “Calzada”. On the other hand, it was the Americans who gave the name “McKinley Street” to the place.
