Dalaguete is a 16th century old town. Oral tradition has it that before Dalagauete became a town, there were two chieftains. Cogo of Barrio Tapon and Maniktok of Barrio Obong, respectively. Dalaguete was organized as separate town when they had succesfully built a common church between their villages in a place called "Unab"

The name Dalagauete came from a tree which grew abundantly in the area the balete tree which is called as the dalakit in Cebuano.
