Long Description:
"The Catholic Church of San Isidro was built in 1835 and derives its name from the patron saint of farmers. The land for the church was given by Jose Jacinto Gallegos, whose family still lives in the area. The church served as a protector from nomadic Indian raids.[xv] Unlike Spanish Colonial government, the Mexican government was unable to finance expeditions against raiders and some settlements were abandoned."
