Named after a Cavite native who became a prominent leader in the Philippine Revolution, the town of General Mariano Alvarez (GMA) started as a relocation site for informal settlers from Metro Manila. It was formally recognized as a municipality in 1981, making it the youngest town in Cavite. Today, GMA is known for its mushroom production industry, which the town celebrates in the annual Kabuteño Festival.
