This area has a strong family heritage. Domingo de LUna came here in 1692 after receiving a land grant. Another prominant family, headed by Don Pedro Otero also came to the area with a land grant. Both families were involved in the area's economy, politics and society. The families were united in marriage in the late 1800's. When the Santa Fe Railroad wanted a right-of-way in 1880, the Luna family approved the grant if the railraod built them a new home. The mansion built for Don Antonio Jose has become a prominent landmark in the area. Both the Otero family and the Luna family have remained in the area.
