During the French and Spanish Colonial Period, 1714 - 1803, this bayou emptied into the Red River, now Cane River Lake. It was the rendezvous when the river trade from New Orleans met the pack animal trains from Old Mexico.

Because of the many mules usually tied up along its banks, the stream was named "Bayou A Mule" on early maps — later changed to Bayou Amulet.

Bayou Amulet was the main drainage canal into the Red River from Lac Terre Noire, now Sibley Lake.
