Bokod, Benguet

According to folklore, Bokod, once a heavily-forested village, got its name from a man named Ebokot (or Ekbot), who introduced agricultural development to the area. Ebokot's name was associated with the village and was registered as a pueblo during the Spanish Regime.

Bokod was established as one of the 19 townships of Benguet during the American Rule with the enactment of Act No. 48 on November 22, 1900.

On August 13, 1908, Benguet was established as a sub-province of the newly created Mountain Province with the enactment of Act No. 1876. As a result, six townships of Benguet were abolished, among them were Ambuklao and Daclan which were integrated into the township of Bokod.
