Etymology and historyEdit
The municipality name, "Alubijid", pronounced alubihid due to Spanish accent, is the local term for the hog plum tree.
Alubijid, along with El Salvador, was part of Cagayan de Misamis (present-day Cagayan de Oro) when the two entities petitioned to become municipalities in 1933. Alubijid became a separate town in 1940, and El Salvador became one 9 years later.
Alubijid is politically subdivided into 16 barangays.
