Tres Alamos means "three
cottonwoods". This location was sometimes also called "Dunbars".
Bourke says it was owned by a man named Montgomery. It was located
on the San Pedro river, 35 miles east of Tucson on Pomerene Road.
This was a well known station on the Butterfield stage line. There
was a ranch house located under some huge cottonwoods and a military
telegraph station with a repairman to look after the line. A post
office was established December 2, 1874. There are no remains of
buildings or foundations at the location.
