Socorro

Overview

About SocorroSocorro was the largest—and wildest—city in New Mexico during the 1880s. After the Panic of 1893 sent silver prices plunging, local mines produced zinc and other ores until these reserves became depleted. The mining era also produced the New Mexico School of Mines, founded in 1889 and later renamed the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
