In the early days, the natives were the owners of vast fertile land of the Municipality of Malaybalay. Some of them settled in the Barangay called Laguitas and particularly in the settlement called Sitio Cenacorohan which means “source of abundant supply”.
In 1952, Mr. Jose Tan Neri, a Chinese merchant accidentally came across the area and settled and married to Dolores Suclatan. A portion of their land was donated to be the site of the Sitio Chapel and the Patron Saint is San Jose until now.
In 1970, Mr. Cipriano O. Tulang became a Kagawad of Barangay Laguitas and he requested the Municipal Council through a resolution for the conversion of Sitio Cenacorohan into a regular Barangay. On December 9, 1972, the Barangay was formally established into a regular one and it was named after its Patron Saint: Barangay San Jose and Mr. Tulang was the first Punong Barangay.
