Capangpangan is bounded on the North by San Julian West of the Municipality of Bantay; on the East by San Julian Norte and San Jose; on the South by Cabalangegan; and on the West by the Meztiso River. It is said that the place is one of the oldest villages situated east of the Meztiso River.
As early as the 17th century the place was visited by the Capangpangan (Pampanga) merchants from Macabebe. They found the place as suitable market for the main product-slippers which they bartered by women cloth, salted fish and jewelry. Some of them intermarried with the people and taught them how to make slipper, together with the art of tanning cow and carabaos skin. It was also a convenient place for the tanning industry as it is near the Meztiso River and there were plenty of camachile trees which were needed in the leather industry. The Capangpangan went there the year around so that the name of the village was changed from “Cacamantirisan” to “Capangpangan”.
