Notes
Survey number HABS TX-3104

Significance: The layout of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church is an example of the New Mexican style of mission churches which were built during the 17th and 18th centuries, characterized by their linear, boxlike forms, with little emphasis on exterior decoration. Although there are no known original interior features surviving, and the east facade has been changed radically, the building retains a great amount of symbolic significance to local residents and members of the Tigua Indian Tribe, for whom the mission was originally built.
