• Brief History
• During the Spanish regime, the early settlers procured their basic household necessity, salt from the spring. During sunny days early in
the morning the natives would go to the spring to fill their bamboo troughs with salty water and expose it to sunlight until the water is
evaporated. Then, they gather the precious sediment, salt to take home. One day, Spanish soldiers passed by the place where the
natives were gathering salt. A soldier inquired with forefinger sign as to the name of the place but because of language barrier they were
not able to understand each other. The natives thought that the soldier wanted to know the content of the troughs. They politely
responded “may-asin”. From then on, the place was referred to as May-asin. Many years later May-asin was changed to Maasin.
• In 1775, Maasin acquired the status of town with the appointment of Don Agustin Gancia as its first captain. When the
Americans came, the town was made arrabal of Cabatuan on April 4, 1903, as it was observed that it could not stand by itself financially.
However, the town leaders worked untiringly for the separation of Maasin. Don Vicente Malaga represented the Municipal District to the
Council in Cabatuan Maasin regained its old status as an independent Municipality when the late Gov. Gen. Francis Burton Harrison
eventually appointed Don Vicente Malaga as its first municipal President on July 25, 1918.
• When the Japanese invaded Panay, Maasin became the sanctuary of evacuees from cities and neighbouring towns.
Somewhere in the mountains, Governor Tomas Confesor established his headquarters while directing the Civil Resistance Government
against the Japanese Imperial Forces in Panay and Romblon from 1942 to 1945. Documents or surrender of the Japanese to the
American Forces were signed in the town Plaza in 1945.
• Since 1903, the highest population growth rate of Maasin was during the intercensal period of 1970-1975 at an annual rate of 3.3%
followed 2.46% during the period from 1939-1948. The explanation in the increase of population during those years can be due to the in-
migration of people from other places especially those who got married and brought their families home with them from the other places
and locality. This could also indicate that during those years that the increase in the population is felt, the economic development in the
municipality is also progressing. The lowest was during the period of 1903-1918 and 1960-1970 which give a decrease of 84 and 724
persons respectively with a negative growth rate. The average growth rate of the municipality from 2000-2007 is .77% annually with an
increase of .28% when compared to the 1990-1995 growth rate as shown in Table 1. The slow increase in the population in the recent
decades can be due to the proper campaign and implementation of the Family Planning in the municipality and the migration in a given
period of time.
