Moriarty history:
In the spring of 1887,a young man, Michael Moriarty, left Iowa because of his poor health. He was headed for California, but was was convinced to stay in New Mexico by some railroad men. In his travels, he met the son of Governor Edmond Ross, who was with a group in search of homestead land. They arrived in the area where Moriarty is located today on March 7, 1887. Mr. Moriarty found his health so improved in the valley that he decided to call it home. He returned to Iowa only long enough to sell his belongings, pack up and move his family back to what would become Moriarty.
The founding of Moriarty: 1887
