HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

The barangay derived its name from the word “Dungaw”, means to “look out of a window” in the local dialect. According to legend, a fair maiden lived in the area and many wanted to court her. However, she had a very strict parents and she was a prisoner in their house. The adoring men just content themselves to pass by her house and maybe get the chance to have a glimpse of her while she “dungaw” from their window.
