History

Barangay Ladol was the youngest barangay in the entire municipality of Alabel.

In 2010, a resolution sponsored by then, Board Member Eugene L. Alzate declaring Ladol as a separate barangay from Poblacion through a plebiscite.

On August 2012, the plebiscite happened. This made way for Sitio Ladol to become a barangay in August 22, 2012. The local chief executive at that time, Mayor Corazon Sunga Grafilo headed the oathtaking ceremony of the appointed barangay officials. Mr. Wilfredo C. Suizo became their first Punong Barangay while Josephine B. Inguillo, Sherlyn Sarcon, Narciso Badilles, Henry Burlas, Leon Sabia, Virgilio Malaras and Joey Maxilom became Ladol’s first set of Barangay Councilors.

We can traced back the history of Ladol based on the popular stories of its people. In the early 30’s, a certain Paulino Palati Baynosa arrived in the area known as Lado. Lado was derived from a name of an Ilonggo farmer, Julio Helado. He owned a large portion of the area’s coconut plantation. Paulino Baynosa’s sister Maria Baynosa married Julio, time passed by Lado became Ladol as Blaan speaking harvesters and planters of Julio’s farm called it.

In 1970’s, a vast land served as horse and cattle farm owned by Pedro Sotto Carriedo, the area was uninhabited and restful.  An event in 1982 provided opportunity for the farmers in the area. Based on an account, a helicopter conducting a land survey created a panic scenario as the locals misidentified the long range camera as a gun, the people evacuated their farms because of fear. Only few back and organized themselves an association known as FAITH (Federation of Agrarian Industrial Toiling Hands).

Philippine Independent Catholic Church was founded in the area in 1983 by Master Maximo Davalos. The said church still functioning and member rose in numbers.

The need for quality basic education was heard through an initiative of then Municipal Councilor Narciso Ra. Grafilo Jr., where Lot No.20 later became the present location of Ladol Primary School. This 5,860 sq. meter vacant lot was donated by Fr. Esteban M. Valderama, Pedro Carredo’s land administrator. Mrs. Lydia Dacean Gamat became one of its first teacher. After three years, in 1994, Ladol Primary school was renamed into Ladol Elementary School with Mr. Marcelino Manibog became its first principal. Another basic need was in health sector where Purok Health Center was established and administered by Mrs. Margarita A. Lapasa in 2002.

On October 31, 1999, a catastrophic flood affected Ladol specifically SACI. A decade after, 2009, flood again affected the area. The bulky numbers of casualties both lives and properties were results of the said flood. The government provided relocation to the affected families at Springhill Village in Spring.

In 2013, the first local election happened in Ladol after its creation as a full-pledged barangay, it was followed by the formulation of its pioneering Barangay Development Plan.
