 Angeles City was formerly a barrio of San Fernando. Known then as "Kuliat", the settlers led by Don Angel Pantaleon de Miranda filed a petition on February 11, 1892 for the segregation of Kuliat from San Fernando. But it was not until December 8, 1829 that "Kuliat" was officially recognized as an independent town in spite of the fact that it only has a population of 661 people. The town was renamed Angeles in honor of its patron and founder and titular saints "Los Santos Angeles Custodios" (The Holy Guardian Angels). By virtue of Republic Act No. 3700, Angeles was finally inaugurated as chartered city on January 1, 1964.

Today, Angeles City known as the "entertainment city" of Central Luzon and the former home of the biggest American Base lies in a threshold of change after being severely affected by the Base pull out brought about the great eruption of Mt. Pinatubo 1991. It is now rising from the ashes by putting itself back to the economic status that it once occupied and dream surpassing feats never before any city or province has ever accomplished.

Angeles City is gaining world fame today as the entertainment capital of the Philippines. It distinguishes itself as one of the fastest-growing cities outside of Metro Manila. It has a most advantageous location, with the quickest access to Clark Freeport Zone and, not an hour away, Subic Freeport Zone, both special economic zones which attract major attention from some of the world’s biggest investors, like Texas Instruments. The city provides an ideal environment for international entrepreneurs not only for the booming nightlife district, but also for the large, highly educated workforce that the city’s universities continue to produce.
