- Oldest Stake in Texas
- 194th Stake of the Church
1st LDS Pioneers
The first Latter-day Saint family to settle at the pass was probably that of Isaac Washington Pierce, who moved there from the LDS colonies in Mexico in 1898 and established a lumber yard in Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from El Paso. The Pierce home became a stopping place for Latter-day Saints traveling through the gateway.
In 1912 the El Paso Branch was formed. In that same year, a mass exodus of members from the Mormon colonies reached El Paso, called back to the United States because of the Mexican Revolution.
