Agno Church

The town of Agno is said to have been originally founded in the year 1917 and was named efter Governor General Agno. The town site was formerly situated in a place called Binabalian, northwest of the present town proper. Due to piratical depradations, the inhabitants moved southeast into the interior and established the town permanently in 1818 on the site which is now occupies.

In its beginnings, Agno was populated by Zambals, but as years went by these were outnumbered by Ilocano immigrants. Agno was a part of Zambales until 1904.
