This was once a forested area where giant trees abound. It was said that there was once a very big mango tree under which the men constructed a long platform, to saw the logs they have gathered. They called it “Tanggadan” (a place to rest) in Ilokano dialect and in Pangasinan, a variation of “Tangkaran.” This place was eventually made the working site of the lumberjacks. Soon, the place was called Tangcarang.
