The Misión de Corpus Cristi de Ysleta del Sur has a long history, going all the way back to 1682, when it was established by the Tigua Indians. The Tribal community sought refuge at this site while fleeing Spanish forces in 1680 and built a structure made of adobe. Over the next few centuries the mission suffered casualties as fire and flooding ransacked the building(s). It was rebuilt and moved several times until it reached its present site in 1908. It is considered the oldest continuous parish seat in Texas and it is also known as Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.
The Tigua Indians operate what they call a living history pueblo on the only Texas Indian reservation located within a major city. Oldest community in present boundaries of Texas,

Today, it contains artifacts and furniture from the early 20th-Century and other documentary evidence in his preparation of the incursion against Pancho Villa and his forces. Unfortunately, the general's family never joined him because shortly after his arrival in El Paso, his wife and three daughters perished in a San Francisco house fire. Local legend says that the place is haunted, but nevertheless, it is an interesting gem that highlights American history as told from this divisive man, father and general.
