Irma Escontrias Sanchez will share her family’s experiences on their ranch and their rich legacy to our area through a PowerPoint presentation with many historic photographs. Irma is the granddaughter of Silverio and Pilar Escontrias who once owned a working ranch in what is now Hueco Tanks State Park. The Escontrias family had a farm in Socorro and donated land for the first school in Socorro, Texas. She hopes her book, “The Escontrias Family Legacy: A Very Personal Journey,” will inspire everyone to write the story of their own family and their own life story.
