Irma Escontrias Sanchez Talk
May 14, 2016
Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic Site
HTSPHS is excited to host Irma Escontrias Sanchez, who will share family stories of ranch life in early El Paso and Socorro and discuss her family’s legacy. Ms. Sanchez is the granddaughter of Silverio and Pilar Escontrias, who operated a ranch on Park property and whose home now serves as its Interpretive Center. Silverio Escontrias is fondly remembered for establishing the first school in Socorro, Texas, known today as the Escontrias Elementary School.
