The El Paso Museum of History wishes to conserve a 360 year-old artifact from the historic Mission Valley in El Paso, TX.

The El Paso Museum of History has in its archives a 360 year old Ysleta Mission door. There are four Missions along the Rio Grande that were originally built under the guidance of early Spanish explorers. The Missions are: the Socorro Mission, Ysleta Mission, San Elizario Mission, and the Mission de Guadalupe in Juarez, MX. It is the goal of the El Paso Museum of History to have the door conserved and then to display the door in our free, permanent gallery, The Changing Pass. Conservation has been estimated at $24,000. The Museum has raised $17,365 to date through various events focusing on this project. In December of 2012, we will open a new temporary gallery specifically focusing on the Missions and its People. We hope to be able to include the door among the many other treasures on loan from the community. Conservation is expected to take 10-12 weeks.
