History[edit]

Before 1910, San Francisco was part of sitio Ilihan, itself part of the large barangay of San Pascual. When Ilihan became a separate barrio in 1910, San Francisco was named as one of its sitios. It was only on June 24, 1968 that it became an independent barangay.[4]

Profile[edit]

Physical Features[edit]

The boundaries of San Francisco are its rivers, which extend to San Pascual, Bulilis and Villa Teresita. These rivers are the source of water for home use and for irrigation. The topography of the barangay is a plain with hundreds of trees around its plaza and the present school site.

Economy[edit]

La Carlota ranch is situated in the southern portion of the barangay and covers approximately 600 hectares (1,500 acres). Much of its area is used for farming, as well as for cattle raising and livestocks. To help farmers in the community, organizations like FASFI and Barangay Agrarian Reform Committee (BARC) were established.[4]
