Alimodian Barangay - Ingwan
Feast Day: 2nd Saturday of March
Patron Saint: St. Joseph Montana
Based on the old documents, the name of the barrio came from a creek Ingwan which can still be found in the area. There are four sitios in the barangay when it was established in the 1920s under the leadership of Juan Anacan. The four sitios are Balentian, Luan-luan, Banco and Camanse.
The barrio was hit by malaria and cholera epidemic in 1920 and many were killed. The residents abandoned the place.
In 1925 the people returned in Ingwan and they established the barrio in the southern part of the original area of settlements. In 1929 the center of the barrio was transferred to the northeast (takas patuo) of the second center. The fourth transfer took place in 1941 and they chose the western part of the original settlement site. At that time, Gregorio Allanic is the incumbent barangay captain.
