Originally this was the site of the warehouse of a large shipping firm which ran bull trains to Mexico during the days when Hays City was "the end of the line." The owner, Miguel Antonio Otero, had acted as Territorial Governor of New Mexico in 1861, and his son Miguel, Jr., governed the territory from 1897 to 1906. Two of Otero's Mexican drivers once had a fight with stilettos, and one remained here on Boot Hill. The younger Otero wrote later that he had known "Calamity Jane" when she lived in Hays City in 1868.
