In 1926, there was a “Karehan” (eatery) located in front of a house owned by a Chinese here in Barangay San Francisco to a nearby hardware. During that time, Kalesa (horse-drawn coach) is the only method of transportation going to the town because the roads are muddy and there are no cemented roads. One day, this Chinese and his family will go to the market on the town and the “Kutsero” (coachman) asked where they headed. And the Chinese said “kareha”. The kutsero thought he heard “Kalehan”. The word or term “Kalehan” is used by every people who’ve been to the eatery of the Chinese until it is called Calihan.
