History

The full, official name of this barangay is Isidro Carmona. Its namesake was a Filipino commander who participated in several revolts during the 1896 Philippine Revolution against the Spanish Empire.

From the American period and under a sovereign Republic of the Philippines, the barrio was a sitio of Barrio Tejeros until the early 1960s. The late Barrio Captains Miling Mangahas and Emiliano San Pascual, along with their respective Barrio Councils, worked to have Carmona secede from Tejeros as an independent barangay during the same period.[3]
