Town History

The Municipal district of Imugan (now Santa Fe) was an Igorot settlement during the Spanish time. It was one of the settlements discovered during the mission of Ituy, which later became part if the jurisdiction of the Commandencia of Kayapa. It became pat of Aritao before it finally stood independently as a small rich town.

Its original inhabitants were the Kalanguya, cultural minority belonging to the Igorot tribe then later on followed by the Pangasinenses and the Tagalogs. Owing to the industriousness and the perseverance of the immigrants, the places gradually turn to be the progressive and the productive municipal district. With the advancement of time the immigrants themselves derived the same Santa Fe in honor of the Patron Saint San Jose-Santa Fe.

The Municipal district of Imugan (now Santa Fe) was founded by Governor General Francis Harrison in 1917. By virtue of Executive Order No., 77 dated July 1, 1964 it was converted from a municipal district to a regular municipality by the President of the Philippines, His Excellency Ferdinand E. Marcos, after learning of the town’s annual average income of P5, 8510.40 during the four (4) consecutive fiscal years which ended on June 30, 1964 by virtue of Republic Act No.1515.

The enactment of Republic Act. No .2179 on May 6, 1959 marked the emergence of a new town in the province of Nueva Vizcaya through the pioneering leadership of Ex-Mayor Tom Chenggay, who succeeded him by appointment and later by election covering the terms from 1979 to 1995.
