About:
Alabat, a paradise island in the Pacific, was inhabited by the early family of Caparros because of its excellent fishing grounds, fertility of the soil, wide plains, nearness to a river and safe landing shore. Other immigrants from Gumaca came pouring in upon hearing of the suitability of the place for human habitation. They named the place “CAMAGONG”. Perhaps this name was taken from trees with edible fruits called Camagong or Mabolo which grow abundantly in the Mount Camagong, the highest point in the island.

Historical Background:
Was once a barrio of Binangonan; created as a pueblo in 1766 and became an independent Municipality in 1935 by the virtue of Executive Order 158, signed by then President Manuel L. Quezon, effective on January 1, 1935. Was believed to be the cradle of mythical beings such as nuno, sirena that underscore the rich history and culture of the town.

Then, was aptly named as “Angono”, said to be linked to “Ang Nuno”, a small-long bearded man living in the old balete tree situated in the town’s poblacion. It is home to the Angono Petroglyphs, the oldest known work of art in the Philippines. The birthplace of two great Filipino National Artists, Carlos “Botong” V. Francisco and Maestro Lucio D. San Pedro, National Artists for Visual Arts and Music, respectively.

The town is located 30 kilometres (19 mi) east of Manila, and with the continuous expansion of the metropolis, is now considered part of Metro Manila's conurbation.
