Socorro County, NM
The County of Socorro is beautiful by any standard. It is New Mexico’s third largest county in area, covering 6,625 square miles. Its Southwestern landscape is painted with earth tones. Semi-arid plains and wild grasses can be seen within the county’s four mountain ranges. Socorro County is divided by the second longest river in the United States, the Rio Grande, traveling 1,900 miles from the Continental Divide in Colorado to the tropical delta at the Gulf of Mexico.
The City of Socorro, the county seat, is a technical and industrial haven set in a spacious, breathtaking environment. Cibola National Forest and Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge connect with the surrounding desert environment.
Alamo is just under three hours away from New Mexico’s largest commercial center, Albuquerque.
Located north of the Magdalena and Bear Mountain ranges, Socorro County is surrounded by mountain peaks reaching over 10,000 feet, the area enjoys a near-perfect four-season climate. The air is fresh, the water is pure, and the mountains rise on the horizon.
The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NM Tech) plays a vital role in the community. It is an important educational and research site that is a source of many of the area’s jobs and serves over 2,000 students. NM Tech is a state-supported institution offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in science, engineering, and technical fields. Internationally renowned, NM Tech is continually rated in the top national universities by Money Magazine and the Princeton Review.
Socorro County encompasses smaller semi-rural communities where residents are extremely friendly. Single-family housing costs are both lower and more stable than larger cities. Houses in the area range from historical adobe (mud brick) houses to modern high-efficiency homes.

The reservation of the Alamo Chapter of the Navajo Nation is open throughout the year to visitors interested in experiencing a more traditional way of life.
