Morong, originally called Bayandati, was a small settlement located in Barrio Nagbalayong Due to the scarcity of land available for cultivation, the early inhabitants migrated to adjacent areas where wider lands can be discovered They found Poblacion, the present site where the Spaniards met the natives of Moron

Our Lady of the Pillar Parish Church

The name Moron was given during the 16th century A group of Spaniards arrived and inquired from the natives the name of their place The natives thought that the Spaniards were asking about the Moros who retreated after a severe fighting, so they replied, Mga Moro umuurong hence the place was called Moron Moros was a reference to the first inhabitants who bartered their products in the 16th century In 1578, it became part of Corrigimento de Mariveles together with Bagac and Maragondon, Cavite But it was only in 1607 that Moron was officially founded as an ecclesiastical parish and as a pueblo including the Coral Stone Church by the Recollects and was officially founded by Fr Rodrigo de San Miguel who placed it under the protection of the Our Lady of the Pillar The Our Lady of the Pillar Parish of Morong, erected in 1607 one of the oldest seats of Catholic faith in the Philippines originally orchestrated from the elements of the Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque sources It culminated its 400th Year foundation anniversary on October 12, 20076

On 16 January 1942, Imperial Japanese Army and an Allied coalition of Filipino-American forces both raced to capture Morong They reached the town around the same time, but the Allies had detected the Japanese first Taking the opportunity for a surprise attack, Lieutenant Edwin P Ramsey of the 26th Cavalry Regiment ordered his troops to charge; the 27 heavily outnumbered Filipino and American cavalrymen charged and scattered the surprised Japanese It was the last charge of American cavalry7
