History of Ususan

Ususan is one of the villages that make up Taguig when the said town was established as a pueblo or town under the jurisdiction of Tondo in 1587. According to the record of 1986, this village was inhabited by 8, 193 Filipinos.

The name Ususan was known to the people who lived there from the beginning. “Ususan” means a fat place where things above it descend. According to the results of the researches, in the past the current village was dense.

Those who live on the other side of the river are called Maysapang. The other is adjacent to the mountain range where the former Fort McKinley (Fort Bonifacio) lived.

When the Spaniards came in 1958 the people living in the mountains were expelled and they went down to the plains. Since then, the said village was called Ususan or Maysapang. It is also said that the first people living in Ususan came from Pasig.

Ususan is made up of four areas: Subaan, Ibaba Langos, Kili Banda and Pampangin. The village is shaped like the letter “U”.
