Socorro County Commission Welcome

I am pleased to welcome you to Socorro County. There are many sites and venues that will attract you to stay and see. The landscape of Socorro County is very unique, in that within a short distance you can enjoy a variety of scenes. For example, the Rio Grande with its Bosque and riverine parks traverse through the center of the county, South Baldy in the Magdalena Mountains will show you a view from an elevation of almost 11,000 feet, the farmland along the river valley and the northernmost boundary of the Chihuahuan Desert through White Sands Missile Range.

Socorro County has a diverse cultural background and is rich in farm and ranch lands that provide a large amount of the economy to the area. There are many sites to see and many events to attend throughout the year that are identified within this guidebook.

As Chairman of the Board of County Commission, I hope that your stay is enjoyable and look forward to your return.


Jay Santillanes, Chairman
Socorro County Commission
