What is known as Garcia-Hernandez today was Sinugboan two centuries ago. The term Sinugboan comes from a Visayan rootword “sugbo” which means “to immerse,” or “to plunge.” Oral history has it that there were several mud pools in the said place which made it an ideal place for deers and other animals, particularly the carabao which is the local farm animal, to wallow-in after a hot and tiring day of plowing the fields. Hence, the natives called the place Sinogboan. It was one of the cabeccerias or political districts of Jagna during the 18th century.
Garcia-Hernandez is blessed with various natural wonders and many are still yet to be developed. Presently, there are two major sites frequently visited by tourists and locals alike, the President Manuel Roxas Campsite and the Our Lady of All Nations Shrine.
