ABOUT TACURONG

   The place which later became the City of Tacurong was once a barangay of the Municipality of Buluan of the then Empire Province of Cotabato. The place was originally called ‘Pamasang’, the name of a creek that flowed from south to north of the area. In the 1940s, the place served as way station of the 19-C Land Survey Team due to its strategic location. During those years, the place also became a stopover point for travelers and the Oblate Missionaries on their way to different parts of Cotabato Province.

The name ‘Pamasang’ was later changed to Talakudong, a term for a head gear worn by the early settlers and people in the area. How the place came to be associated with head covering cannot be ascertained. Eventually, the name was shortened/changed to Tacurong. It can only be deduced that the present name of Tacurong must have originated from the word ‘Talakudong’.
