Founded by the Augustinian Fathers Geronimo Marin and Francisco Bustos on May 16, 1584, it was the first capital of Negros Occidental and Siquijor Provinces in the late 19th century. The name Ilog (or Ylog, Tagalog for "river") was recommended by a Tagalog guide of the Spaniards because the place was entirely surrounded by the longest river on the whole Negros Island, the Ilog Hilabangan River. The first inhabitants of Ilog are mostly migrants from Panay province.
