History[edit]

In the early part of the 19th century, the place was part of the municipality of Ubay, known as Lapinig Grande and subdivided into six barrios: Pitogo, Aguining, Basiao, Bonbonon, Gaus, and Tugas.[5]

Congressman Teodoro Galagar of the 3rd Congressional District of the province of Bohol, initiated the formation of Lapining Grande into a town. Aguining, Pitogo, and Bonbonon were the barangays bidding for township. On 21 June 1969, RA 5864 was approved creating Pitogo as the 46th town of the province of Bohol with 23 regular barangays.[6] Eight years later on 27 October 1977, it was renamed by Presidential Decree 1228 in honour of President Carlos P. Garcia,[7] who was born in nearby Talibon.[5]
