San Ysidro Church
This is the Old San Ysidro Church and Cemetery in Corrales, New Mexico. It is known as the "Old San Ysidro Church" to differentiate it from the less old (and much larger) San Ysidro Church which is on Corrales Road.
Unfortunately, adobe buildings built close to rivers don't fare well when it rains too much and in 1868, the Rio Grande flooded washing away both the church and the cemetery. The rising waters scattered the dead all over the place. Ten coffins were retrieved and there are now a total of 21 coffins buried under the church floor, which practically guarantees that the church is haunted. (read the signs in the photos below)
Over the years, I have shot several weddings here but it is no longer in use as an active church. The Village of Corrales rents it out for special events such as weddings and art shows.
