Clarin is in the northeastern part of Bohol and is 61 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. It was organized on January 31, 1919 out of territories taken from Tubigon, Inabanga and Carmen. It was originally called Can-ogong after one of the early settlers named Ogong who had a habit of hanging a bamboo tube for salted fish. Since he was a popular man in the community the place was called after him, Can-ogong, meaning Ogong's place.

Cang-ogong was changed to Clarin when it was organized as a municipality in honor of the first Civil Governor of Bohol, Hon. Anecito Clarin.

During World War II, its central school was used by the Japanese as a concentration camp for suspected persons.

Hello! Where can I go to get further history of Clarin Bohol going back to the 1800’s? I’m interested in my family history. Thanks in advance!

Hi. Wanna ask how much is the zonal value of a land per sq. meters in Pob. Centro? I'm planning to buy a piece of land to that place. Thanks!

Go to BIR, and download the zip file in which you can find this information. Note that the zonal values are often extremely old, and are not a proper indication for current market value (for Clarin Poblacion, rates are from 2002, and range from 95 to 175 pesos per square meter. I think you can easily multiply those values by 5).--Jeroen.
