Free State of Socorro
Socorro, New Mexico, is much more than just a place where one can take pictures of beautiful skies, it's... "a free state of mind." We'll be celebrating the 57th anniversary of the birth of our unofficial free state this year. The Constitution of the Free State of Socorro was first written in Spain in 1810. In 1953 citizens of Socorro, New Mexico, who are largely of spanish decent, brieflly seceded and established the "Free State of Socorro" an event which is still celebrated to this day.
Viva la Free State of Socorro !!!
