description

Nuestra Señora de la Concepción del Socorro is located in the town of Socorro. The Socorro Mission was established in 1680 when Spanish colonizers from northern New Mexico fled the Pueblo Revolt with Piro natives and other tribes. Flooding caused by the Rio Grande River twice forced the community to rebuild the mission, the third and final building being completed in 1848. The mission, constructed of adobe surfaced with stucco, is particularly notable for its interior.
