History[edit]

Sagbayan was formerly part of the surrounding municipalities of Clarin, Inabanga, Carmen, and Balilihan. It was formed into a separate town by an Executive Order of President Elpidio Quirino on 9 February 1949, and named Borja,[6] in honor of Salustiano Borja, the first elected civil governor of the Province of Bohol.[5] It reverted to its original name in 1957.[7]

In October 2013, Sagbayan was close to the epicenter of a magnitude 7.2 earthquake. The town suffered 12 fatalities and damage to almost 1,000 homes, as well as total destruction of its town hall.[8]
