     History
    The Mission Socorro was originally founder in 1682, but the original structure was washed away in a flood of the Rio Grande River. The current structure dates from 1843. It was restored in 1896, and then pretty much left to its own devices. In 2004, a full restoration project was begun, and the mission was under construction for almost two years. Renovation is almost complete, and mission will be as good as new.
