History[edit]

This contributed to the town's continuous growth. Eventually, the Bauan was partitioned once again and San Pascual became an independent municipality in 1969 because of the strong leadership of Mayor Leonardo “Leoning” Mendoza. He is the father and founder of San Pascual, Batangas, his hometown.
