The locale is the site of a former U.S. Naval Radio Transmitter Communications Station (USNRST Bouknadel Morocco). The Naval Airstation was near the town of Kenitra, formerly known as Port Lyautey [1] Earliest permanent settlement of this area is evidenced at the Phoenician and Roman settlement of Chellah slightly to the south on the banks of the Oued Bou Regreg.[2] [3]
