In its early days, Buladean's ministers were known as "circuit riders" and used horses to take them over the rough mountain paths. After a few of the main roads were opened, and the supply of ore depleted, residents of this small village turned to the forest for their livelihood, filling the fledgling roads with wagons carrying timber. Many purchased properties and settled in this picturesque mountain community.
