The Taínos, were the long time settlers in this area before the arrival of the European explorers. The Spanish colonist Juan Ramírez de Arellano established Bayamón as a Spanish settlement on May 22, 1772. The origin of name Bayamón, according to one belief, is that it  was named after the local Taíno chief, Bahamon. As per other belief, the name was derived from the Taíno word Bayamongo, which is a river that runs through the region. Bayamón is the area around this main river, which later on became the center of city’s development.
