City of Maasin

History
Legend has it that Ferdinand Magellan on his way from Limasawa to Cebu in 1521 dropped by Canturing and Combado rivers for fresh water supply. His men found the taste of the water salty, thus the name MAASIN. The Jesuits founded the Maasin settlement in 1700. It became a town in 1755, part of the Leyte province. When Southern Leyte was created in 1960, Maasin was made the provincial capital and seat of the lone congressional district. Maasin was elevated to city status on August 10, 2000 by virtue of RA 8796, ratified overwhelming by Maasinhons in a plebiscite. The first city mayor and incumbent chief executive is Damian G. Mercado.
