Long time ago, there were settlers from neighboring places wandering farther west to seek better and bigger place for cropping. They reached a certain place covered with forest and rocky. Higher up from the place where hills of stones and big rocks, the settlers decided to use the place and sought for the source of water. They surveyed the whole area in the lower part, but they did not see any spring, until they reached the higher part or the hills of rocks. They found a very big rock like a very huge basin which was full of water. They were amazingly surprised to see the enormous rock that held water, but soon they began to clean the water by taking away fallen leaves and twigs, they left it for a couple of days so that all particles above water would sink to the bottom. Days on, the water became clearer and pristine. The procedure or process they were using means “Lugdang” in the vernacular, and thus born the name “Lundag”.
On May 28, 1925, Lundag which was used to be a wilderness and secluded place was declared and recognized as one of the barnagays in the Municipality of Anda.
