Cagayan de Misamis, now known as Cagayan de Oro City, was the Capital town of the Segundo Distritc de Misamis in northern Mindanao at the close of the Spanish regime in the Philippines. In December 1898, just after Spain signed the Treaty of Paris with the United States, Misamis organized its first Filipino local government which President Emilio Aguinaldo sanctioned. This revolutionary local government was formally proclaimed on January 10, 1899 in solemn ceremonies outside the Casa Real of Cagayan de Misamis. The Filipino officials ruled uninterrupted until the following year, 1900.
