The Santa Trail crossed the Mora River just to the northwest, and it is likely that many of the older collections referring to that river, were made in this general vicinity.

Agustus Fendler passed by near here in 1847, as described in Gray's (1849) Plantae Fendleriana.

Original Text
[Fendler] ... quitted Santa Fe, August 9th [1847], followed the usual road to Fort Leavenworth, which separates from the ‘Bent's Fort road’ at the Mora River, and unites with it again at the ‘Crossing of the Arkansas.’
