Carolina is also known as "El Pueblo de los Tumba Brazos" (arm hackers town), because in old days, it is said that people resolved their conflicts with a duel. 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.
