It is home of our Philippine Eagle and the famous Malagos Garden Resort.

It was in 1916 when Paulino Naraval, a public school teacher, came to settle in what is now known as Calinan. Prior to that, the Bagobos led by Datu Abeng were known to be the early inhabitants of the wilderness.
It was in early 1920s when changes were introduced with the arrival of Cipriano Villafuerte Sr. He initiated the establishment of institutions and the construction of infrastructure. Besides, he encouraged the tribal leaders to organize communites. Villafuerte crafted the foundations of the populace.
