In what life was crude and simple, San Mateo has developed into one of the progressive towns of Isabela. First named as "Marasat", it was a former barangay of Cauayan, then Santiago. It was called the Municipality of Yoshisawa under the government of the Japanese Imperial Army during the Second World War. After the liberation, it was finally created and named San Mateo by virtue of Presidential Executive Order No. 97 on March 17, 1946 by former President Sergio Osmeña. It was proclaimed as the Agro-Ecological Destination in Cagayan Valleyby President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 1685 dated December 1, 2008.
