In the earlier times, when the road and bridges were not as developed and as popular as they were at the present, people travel by sea. In Pangasinan, Dagupan is then the bustling center of trade and commerce while Alaminos in the west is showing signs of progress. No wonder Dagupeños anchored their closeness to the sea.
Incidentally, due to the sandy soil of Bued, they call it Buer, meaning “sand.” Sabangan is just a sitio of Bued and to distinguish it from the latter was called “Sabangan” because of the river separating it from Bued. Likewise, it is said that this river is isolated from its mainland Bued. Thus, this swampy, mountainous, and grassy land was called Sabangan since then. Sabangan gained status as a Barangay sometime in April 1971.
