Loma Parda

Once called "Sodom on the Mora", Loma Parda has a colorful history. Located just 6 miles from Fort Union full of bored to death soldiers, Loma Parda became one of those places where soldiers could go for wild nights. Saloons, gambling, dance halls and women of ill repute put Loma Parda on the map for decades.
