Historical Roles
Agno used to be the center of trade and education in Western Pangasinan during the Spanish era. Ships and boats then called "viray" transported rice, copra and other farm products from Agno to nearby towns and then sold them in Manila and Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Don Vicente Martinez, a pharmacist-medical practitioner, and Maestro Teodorico Espinosa taught young boys not only from Agno but also from neighboring towns. The two teachers patiently tutored these children. Graduates were eligible to enter college.
