Inscription. Established in the mid 1600s, the mission of San Antonio de Senecú was the last outpost on the Camino Real before the Mesilla Valley to the south. Around 1820 Hispano settlers from the north re-occupied the area after the Pueblo Revolt. Conrad Hilton got his start here, carrying luggage from the train station to his father's hotel located in his family's adobe house.
