|Ulong Beach is in the Municipality of Mogpog, Barangay Capayang
|If you haven't visited Ulong in a while, a lot of roadwork has happened the past year. The old dirt
road that led to Ulong from the National Highway has been paved. This is part of the by-pass road
that will go to Boac. So far there are two lanes and the old bridge near the highway has been
replaced. With the pandemic the work has stopped for now but we are looking forward to a road
extenison into Ulong proper and a new bridge crossing the waterway to the South on Ulong.
You can keep track of current events on our facebook page: Ulong Beach Marinduque Philippines.
Schooling has been an important part of the history of Marinduque. Americans
were impressed with the education systems they found. Most schooling was private
until July, 1901 when the Division Superintendent of Public Instruction was
organized with Native teachers. The schools were soon overwhelmed with growing
attendance and American teachers were asked to help out. Below are pictures from
1907 taken in Santa Cruz.
