One could start the history of this municipality with the history of its two oldest communities --- Caguray and Sta. Teresa. Caguray was mentioned in the report of a Jesuit missionary to the head of his congregation in 1666.  The missionary reported that he baptized many adults in the villages of Cagulay and Ililin.  When Congressman Pedro Medalla, Sr. was elected as the representative of Occidental Mindoro in 1965, he strived to separate Magsaysay and Rizal from San Jose and created those places as independent municipalities.  On April 3, 1969 by virtue of Republic Act 5459 which Congressman Medalla sponsored in Congress, Magsaysay was elevated to the status of a municipality.  Placed under the jurisdiction of the new town were the barrios of Alibog, Laste, Caguray, Sibalat, Sta. Teresa, Calawag, Nicolas, Gapasan, Purnaga, Paclolo and Lourdes.
