There are 70 hectares (170 acres) of land southwest of downtown, which is the historical Barrio Milagrosa. This place was formerly part of the vast land of Yaptinchay of Binan, Laguna. The understanding by those living there is that the hacienda was part of Carmona before 1935. The people started to try to return the ownership to the people of Carmona. They built the organization called "Samahang Pagkakataon Na" under the leadership of then Mayor Mapanoo Marciano. There are many things which have occurred to the disappointment of the association. But the people had a strong commitment. In 1938, led by Mayor Mapanoo and G. John Alumia, including also three truck people, they went to the Malacañang Palace to gain the permission of President Quezon. The president and once again proved his awareness of the emerging social justice. After the Second World War, the land was divided and given to the landless. This area is named the "Milagrosa" because the returning of the land to the local people is "Milagro".
