A 14th August 1922 report from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Ricardo Umali, documents that USEC Victor O. Ramos instructed DENR-Region III (Pampanga) to:

“file criminal charges against JNJ Marble and the Spar Development Co., Inc. persuant to Sect. 78, P.D. 463.”

On the 30th October 2012, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje, signed DENR Memorandum Circular No. 2012-03 entitled List of Classified Caves. This document classified Pinagrealan Cave as a Class II Protected Cave within this definition:

“Caves with areas or portions which have hazardous conditions and contain sensitive geological, archaeological, cultural, historical and biological values or high quality ecosystem. It may be necessary to close sections of these caves seasonally or permanently. It is opened to experienced cavers or guided educational tours/visits.”

Pinagrealan Cave is one of only two caves in Bulacan to be classified in this manner. The other DENR Class II Classified Cave in Bulacan is Puning Cave.

“Pinagrealan Cave, which is known a historical landmark by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines.”

Dated August 2014 the Technical Assistance Consultant’s Report: Angat Water Transmission Improvement Project Report states:

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Cave Management, Protection and Conservation Strategy and Action Plan (CMPCSAP) 2019-2028 states that:

“Some caves in the Philippines have historical significance. The Pinagrealan Cave in Bulacan was used by the first Philippine President – Emilio Aguinaldo – as a refuge during the FilipinoAmerican War.”

The above report also states that Pinagrealan Cave is a National Historic Site protected under Presidential Decree No. 374/1974.

The historical market was placed there during the Mayoralty of Mayor Feliciano Legaspi Sr In 2012, when the Municipality of Norzagaray declared Pinagrealan Cave a protected historical site.
