HistoryEdit

It was created as the municipal district of Potia in 1955 from the barrios of Potia, Dolowog, San Juan, San Quintin, Cabicalan, Pinto, Busilac, Santa Maria, and Namillangan in the municipal district of Mayaoyao.[5] In 1959 the name was changed to Alfonso Lista to memorialize the first mayor.

Originally organized during the Osmena Commonwealth administration as a part of San Mateo, Isabela, the barangays which presently compose Alfonso Lista were transferred to Mayoyao (then a part of Mountain Province).
