Cabaroan Laud is bounded on the North by San Jose and San Julian, on the east by Cabaroan Daya, on the west by Cabalangegan and on the south by Camanggaan.
As early as the founding of Vigan by Captain Juan de Salcedo, this settlements or village was inhabited by the Tinggians (Itnegs) who are industrious and peace-loving people. They were farmers and produced root crops like peanuts, camote and togi in the dialect.
The village was sparsely populated at that time, as the gobernadorcillo (mayor) of Vigan, wanted to develop the place by inviting people from densely populated area to settle there. A family was given an area to cultivate, so the Tinggians were displaced by the new settlers. Many settled in the place in latter years and it become prosperous. Toads and trails were built and village government was established. This place then become the latest and the youngest village, east of Meztiso River at the time, so that it came to be called “CABAROAN” which means newest and latest in English.
Almost all families in the place have farm lots to cultivate. Among their farm products are the sugar, rice corn, peanuts and other root crops and vegetables. Aside from being farmers, the female inhabitants were also weavers of Ilocano cloth. A certain percentage of the populations in the barangay are farmers.
