Interior of the Ysleta Mission

The Ysleta Mission of El Paso County is the oldest continuously active parish in the state of Texas, and the community of Ysleta is the oldest town in Texas, first established after the 1680 Pueblo Revolt.
The Ysleta del Sur Pueblo was founded in 1682. This building lasted until a disastrous flood in 174o. In late 1851, the present building was established.
