#MORE ON ABOUT
San Jose, years before it became a town was a wilderness, a veritable hunting ground for wild animals by the inhabitants of its neighboring towns. The earliest inhabitants were known as Negritos (Baluga) headed by Kapitan Danding, a Negrito convert residing in Pinagcuartelan. These early inhabitants depended mostly on hunting and fishing for their livelihood. Some hunters from the neighboring towns found San Jose as a good place for settlers due to its wide and uncleared agricultural land. The first group of settlers made some clearings (kaingin) in the outskirts of the present town.
San Jose City has a total land area of 18,725 ha. which is roughly 3.25% of the total land area of the Province of Nueva Ecija of 5,751.33 sq. km. The City is politically subdivided into 38 barangays divided into 10 urban and 28 rural classification.
Important Facts and Events that Took Place
At the early part of the American regime, peace and order were enjoyed by the inhabitants of the town for a short period of time. In 1902, there was an uprising by an organization named "Sta. Iglesia" headed by a notorious bandit, "Apo Ipe" (Felipe Salvador) who hid in the environs of San Jose. The aim of this organization was the nightmare of the town until Sgt. Gregorio Cadhit of the constabulary detachment of San Jose killed the notorious bandit leader.
The city is subdivided to the urban and rural district political areas. The urban subdivision comprises the five barangays or districts in the Poblacion (R. Rueda Sr., F. E. Marcos, C. Ramos, R. Eugenio and C. Sanchez) and the five barangays adjacent to the city proper (Abar 1st, Calaocan, Malasin, Sto. Niño 1st and Sibut). Although the area covered by the urban subdivision only consists of 10 barangays, the urban area has a total population of 58,342 or 42.26% of the total population of the city, which is 138,063 based on the 2014 update of population from the City Population Office.
The city has been blessed by nature that produces quality mineral deposits, which eventually can be used for quarrying and transformed into construction materials. Hereunder are the lists of available mineral commodity that can be found in different location within the locality.
