The town of Consolacion, which was formerly named as “Kampiig” has been founded in 1871 with a population of 14,248. The town was initially a barrio of the municipality of Mandaue but eventually became a separate town.
In 1902 and 1903, the town reverted to Mandaue due to its incapacity to maintain its status as an independent municipality. Consolacion became an independent municipality again in 1920 with the help of the governor’s petition.
