History[edit]

Foundation[edit]

Tuburan was founded in the 1851 by Don Mariano Montebon who came from the town of Sogod. The townsite was first located at Daan Lungsod which is just across the Adela River, north of the present poblacion. Tuburan got its name from the prevalence of springs, which are the sources of potable water for household use of the early settlers. "Tuburan" evolved from the Cebuano word Tubod, meaning "spring".

Philippine revolution[edit]

General Arcadio Maxilom y Molero was a hero of the Philippine Revolution. He was born in Tuburan where his family were members of the local gentry, or principalía. He worked joined the Katipunan, whose activities in Cebu were led by León Kilat.

After Kilat's execution, Maxilom continued the revolution in Cebu as command. The Katipunan were regroup in the impenetrable central highlands. On 16 December 1898, Maxilom wrote a letter to the Spanish authorities in Cebu, demanding that the latter surrender. Weary after incessant fighting, the Spaniards quickly responded, and in Christmas Eve the Spaniards had left, leaving behind only three Catholic clerics.[7]

Their newfound liberty short lived, as in the Treaty of Paris, Spain had to sell the fate of their former subjects to the United States for twenty million dollars.

Maxilom is best remembered for stubbornly refusing to surrender to the American occupying forces even as his fellow revolutionaries in Manila and Cebu were starting to capitulate or collaborate with the new colonial power. He finally surrendered on 27 October 1901. Virtually forgotten after the revolution, Maxilom died in his hometown of Tuburan, after a long period of time with paralysis.
