San Isidro Church

-A A +A
1900. North of Costilla County K.5, .3 mile east of Costilla County 22.3

New stucco covers the adobe walls, and new shake shingles cover the roof and open bell tower of San Isidro Church. Inside, beside a potbellied stove, the wooden altar is painted to look like white marble. The altar is adorned with a hand-carved wooden statue of St. Isidore of Madrid, the plowman whose fields were tilled by an angel while he prayed.
