LEGEND OF BOOD:

BOOD (1887) – The barangay got its name from the word “tubod” which refers to the spring of clear and fresh water located at the bayside of Maribojoc. It is the main source of water supply for the barrio folks since time immemorial. During droughts, people from the neighboring barangays also fetch water from this spring in times of long droughts. In this spring, people gather to do their laundry jobs, bathing and cleaning other households items.

Some elders say that the name Bood was derived from the word “bolod” which means mountain. Bood is a mountainous place and its center of population is located at the foot of the mountain ranges of Maribojoc along the shores of Maribojoc Bay.
