The mission of the City of Socorro Heritage and Visitor Center is to create a publicly owned facility to preserve, display, and maintain valuable items of historical significance; therefore, our heritage. This is being accomplished by encouraging the locals of the area to bring forth historical items to add to our collection.

We, at the Center, strive to form an open, welcoming atmosphere where residents and visitors are able to witness and view documents of historical significance to our community and surrounding areas. We would also like to create a place where school children are able to experience the history of our community and broaden their perspective of our city’s lively heritage.

The City of Socorro Heritage and Visitor Center is a facility which reflects the culture, heritage, life experiences, and personalities of the people who have provided historical contributions to the development of Socorro and surrounding areas.

Residents, visitors, and tourists are able to obtain valuable and helpful information from our hospitable Visitor Center.
