The Piro Indian pueblo Teypana was visited by Juan de Onate in 1598. The people of the village reportedly supplied corn to Onate who bestowed the name Socorro ("aid" in Spanish) on the pueblo. In 1626, the mission of Nuestra Senora de Socorro was built at the nearby pueblo of Pilabo. Abandoned during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, the present town was founded in 1815.
