History of the Mormon outpost in Northern Mexico. Though founded before the official end of LDS Church sanctioned polygamy, Colonia Juarez's population exploded in the late nineteenth century due to polygamists fleeing the United States. Though still a Mormon outpost, its population has slowly declined over the last century.
