The birth of Barangay Dela Paz can be traced to the existence of vast farmland and a railway that once covered the known as Our Lady of Light.  The birth of Barangay Dela Paz can be traced to the existence of vast farmland and a railway that once covered the area. The railway, known as Daang Riles, was the passageway of a PNR commuter train traveling various towns of Rizal from Montalban to Cainta and Pasig, and vice versa. A portion of it was a bridge where waterways of Marikina River coming from Santolan passed. This river became the wallowing site of carabaos owned by farmers who built their huts along the railroad. As years went by, the trains no longer operate in the area. The railroad gradually became dilapidated and the people started erecting their houses along the railways. Eventually, traces of railways could no longer be found and Daang Riles became a rough road. With the influx of immigrants along Daang Riles and the development of several subdivisions along the area, sitio Dela Paz became thickly populated and soon independent from Santolan and Manggahan.  In 1968, it officially became a barangay on the petition of residents and with the joint approval of the Municipal Council of Pasig and the Provincial Board of Rizal. At present, Barangay Dela Paz is composed of 16 subdivisions, 14 schools, 1 public market and 777 business firms —a proof that the community is becoming  highly urbanized commercial area.
