Corrales Historical Society (CHS) was founded in 1974 as a non-profit organization that could care for and manage Corrales' century-old San Ysidro Church after the parish moved to a new larger building. For many years CHS concentrated on the restoration of the church, ensuring that its essential historic features were kept while its usefulness as a community resource was enhanced. This task is now completed, although maintenance is on-going. The Society also promotes greater appreciation and better understanding of the history and traditions of the community of Corrales, a centuries-old agricultural village just north of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
In the following pages you will find information on our various activities directed toward these ends. We invite you to learn about the history of our village and of the old church and to join us in our efforts. If you do, you will enjoy the company of like-minded people and have the satisfaction of knowing that your volunteer work contributes to preserving the culture and history of this unique village.
Many of your activities take place at the Historic Old San Ysidro Church, 966 Old Church Road in Corrales. MAP
