Based on the history books or tales of the City of Malolos., the barrio of Taal has a simple, but unique beginning. As its meaning implies. TAAL in Filipino means a natural or co-existent, hence a native driven character. There are also some stories passed by generations that the name connotes a sort of a virgin forest area, existing a long time ago consisting of forest trees, woods, that seems unreached by loggers or cutter of trees. There are also some beliefs that the name Taal came from a native dialect word of “TALA” a star that may have been sighted by people near the barrio. In both story one may conclude that Taal has its own origin and not as a result of a discovery.
On the eastern side of the town of Malolos, Taal is the boundary for the towns of Guiguinto and Bulacan. The people of the barrio are peace, loving, quiet and spending their time on farming, planting vegetable and for the women staying at home but augmenting the family income thru home cottage industries. They have constructed their own Catholic Chapel and have St. John the Evangelist as patron saint. As of this writing, there are around 180 families with a population of 946. The barrio takes pride of being one of the first barrios to have organized their parish pastoral council in their place, who serves as their leaders in their spiritual lives. They are under the pastoral care of the Parish Priest of san Jose de Panasahan.
