#LatinoHeritage Roadtrip to Socorro, New Mexico established 1598
On our Latino Heritage trip through New Mexico we decided to make a stop off the beaten path just to explore a city. Definitely found a lot more than what I was expecting in the small town of Socorro, New Mexico — population 10,000. The town is so small if you don’t purposely look for it you will miss it. So thankful we didn’t miss it.
The city is full of Hispanic culture and history. Many the buildings and business in the small town were established by Hispanics in the 1800s.
I have a lot of appreciate for this small town because they preserved this history and their heritage proudly.
