History[edit | edit source]

  • It is assumed that the town of Santa Ana was founded in 1708.
  • The indigenous people of the Musul ethnic group first inhabited the area, who were later added to people from other places such as Santo Toribio and Dolores and immigrants from Yucatan and Chiapas.
  • The first settlement was organized in the savanna of Ixponé, or "Santa Ana Vieja".
  • In 1890 the second settlement of the municipal seat occupied the area of the modern Barrio Buena Vista.
  • Because the area in which the village was located was very muddy, the neighbors decided to move around the church, giving rise to the third and last settlement.
  • The municipality of Santa Ana has a population of approximately 15,000 people[1]
