Situated on the Mora River along the Santa Fe Trail. Settled in the 1830s as a farming village, it soon became a haven for illegal trade with the Comanche. When Fort Union was built thirty miles to the north in 1851, Loma Parda became a local retreat for off-duty soldiers and became known as "Sodom on the Mora" with it's saloons, dance halls and bordellos. Shootings and stabbings were common.
The Jeweled Gun: In April of 1876, Bart Maverick and Daisy Haskell arrived in Loma Parda by stage while traveling from Santa Fe on their way to Laramie, Wyoming Territory and stayed at the Lake Hotel.
