     The name BOOL was derived from a tree species called locally as BOOL TREE, which grew naturally in the delta of the creek near the shore. Boatmen found the shade of the tree as a good shelter for relaxation as they escaped from the sweltering heat of the sun.

     The place became a community as it attracted migrant settlers from the nearby provinces of Cebu and Bohol consequently built their homes and finally settled in the place. Barrio Bool was registered as barrio of Caibiran sometime in 1906 through the effort of Sr. Ambrosio “Man Tiboy” Rostata and with the approval of the President Municipal del Caibiran Sr. Epifanio Epifones.

     Sr. Ignacio Damicog was the leader sometime in the 18th century and Sr. Regino Macabacyao was the first to become the teniente del barrio, when Bool was registered as a barrio, then followed by Eutiquio San Agustin and Felix Ngoho.

     Rufino Gadugdug was the teniente del barrio during the Second World War, followed by Gomersendo Florida, Eduardo Matuguinas, Pacencia Cabutin, Asisclo Bertulfo and Osias Peregrino respectively.

     Mr. Tito “Pegion” Pazon was elected as Barangay Captain in 1970. He passed away before completing his term and was succeeded by his first councilor Dimasalang Sierra. During the advent of “For Bida Fund” fro the purpose of the having greater funds from the national government, the barrio was divided into three(3) parts namely BOOL EAST, BOOL CENTRAL and BOOL WEST.

     BOOL EAST is located 4.0 km from the town proper with a total population of 1046 and composed of 200 households. Fishing and farming are the main economic activities in the place. It has an area of 4.6 sq km. Land utilization is categorically distributed as commercial, agricultural and timberland or forest zone. It is where Bool Elementary School and Bool National High School are located.

     BOOL CENTRAL is the center of the three barangays. It has a population of 708 and is composed of 114 households. It has a total land area of 3.3 sq km. Fishing and farming are the main economic activities here. This is where the two churches of Sr. Sto. Niño are located.

     BOOL WEST is the last yet equally progressive barangay, It has a population of 915 with 148 households and with a total land area of 3.3 sq km. Like the other two barangays, fishing and farming are the occupational endeavors attributed to this locale.

     It must be noted with exemplary importance the three historical landmarks that greatly contributed to the progress ad bulk of civilization to these barangays, because without which, the immediate needs of the inhabitants-the-Boolanons-will certainly be scarce and unbecoming.

     One thing to note is the "GREEN MOUNTAINS" amidst the horizon of the place, locally known as "BUSKI" by elder settlers which provided two fundamental needs of man - food and shelter.

     Another landmark that has been a part of the place’s history is the “CEL VINA”, a creek located at the southern part of the locale, which offered an undying supply of the most important need of the people – water. This is where the people fetch water for their daily consumption since time immemorial.

     Lastly, this landmark that has been considered the “SHELTER FROM WAR” is the spectacular "BOOL CAVE" from which the residents during the World War II took refuge. This cave in one way or another, had helped in the preservation and protection of the lives of the Boolanon’s who suffered much from the war.
