Learn About Carolina History

Lorenzo Vizcarrondo founded Carolina in 1857. The city's original name was Trujillo Bajo. It took on a new name when Don Gaspar Martínez, the person who donated the land to establish the municipality, requested that the town be called Carolina in honor of his daughter Carolina de San Juan. Carolina is known as "La Tierra de Gigantes" (land of giants), in honor of one of its inhabitants: Don Felipe Birriel, who was the tallest man in Puerto Rican history, with an unconfirmed height of 2.413 meters or seven feet eleven inches (7' 11"), but not only him, including poet Julia de Burgos and most notably the first Latin American player named to baseball's Hall of Fame, Roberto Clemente. Carolina was also home to Jesús T. Piñero, the first Puerto Rican to be appointed as governor by the United States government.
