History[eedit | eedit soorce]

Afore the Spainyie Conquest, the area wis kent as Cuautlalpan or Sierra de Las Cruces, an wis inhabitit bi the Otomis. Thay oreeginally livit in the heichlands, gatherin the abundant vegetation an huntin rabbits, hares, armadillos, deer an raccoons. Several crude templos hae been foond which wur dedicatit tae the gods Makata (god o the muntains) an Makame (god o rain an fertility, representit bi flouers). Adoratorios dedicatit tae a god cried Otontecutli are foond in the caves, monoliths an sacred rocks o the upper elevations. These fowk wur conquered a nummer o times, includin bi the Olmecs, the Nahuatlacs an bi the region o Tlacopan afore bein conquered bi the Aztec Triple Alliance an then, o course, the Spaniards.[1]

Tradeetion states that the emperor Moctezuma Xocoyotzin likit the area sae hintle that he haed a palace biggit in wha is nou the neebourheid o Tecpan.[1]

Efter the Spainyie Conquest, the history o the area at first wis tee'd wi Hernán Cortés. Cortés exertit his authority indirectly throu the caciques o the area an throu the Encomienda Tacuba, tae which Huixquilucan belangit. Later, the area wad be unner the control o various Spaniards lik Primer Viceroy Antonio de Mendoza an indigenous rulers lik Totoquiahuatzin, the govrenor o Tlacopan. Durin this time, the area wis bein evangelisit an the tradeetional tribute wis bein paid while the area wis bein redistributit wi new names o Christian saunts.

The municipality wis establisht on 21 October 1846. In auncient times its territory haed been inhabitit bi Otomi, Tepanec, Mexica an Acolhua populations.

Syne 1960, the municipality o Huixquilucan haes experienced explosive growthe in population an infrastructur acause o its proximity tae Mexico Ceety. Ane o the first expansions wis the construction o the "Fraccionamiento" (subdiveesion) o La Herradura, which haes subsequently grown.
