Brief History
  • In 1872, the Spaniards organized the settlement into a rancheria.
  • Suyo was part of the Commandancia Politico-Militar (CPM) of Amburayan which was established on April 10, 1890.
  • In 1922, the Americans turned it into a township.
  • Later on, it was changed to a municipal district.
  • In 1963, Suyo became a regular municipality by virtue of Republic Act No. 1515 and under Exec. Order No. 61.
  • The town’s name was derived from the Ilocano word naisuyo meaning “thrown” because, according to old folks, said barangays were formed by the soil that accumulated at the river bank when the river overflowed its banks.
