Location of Socorro, New Mexico

Socorro is a city located in Socorro County, New Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, at an elevation of 4579 feet. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 8,877. It is the county seat of Socorro County.

The City of Socorro bills itself as having been established in 1598, but it would be more accurate to say that the area was named in that year — by Spanish explorers who had crossed the Jornada del Muerto and were much in need of the aid and hospitality they received when they got to the area around present-day Socorro. The name means ‘aid’ or ‘help’ or ‘refuge’.

Nowadays Socorro is an interesting place but easy to pass by on Interstate 25. Those who do stop in and venture off California Street (the main through road) can easily get lost — Socorro has streets on several different patterns, and some oddly named: Central and Center street are parallel, two blocks apart; Neel and Neal have nothing to do with each other; and Long Street is one block long while Short Street is three blocks long.
