    Histories
    Hastings, Colorado
    Hastings, Colorado
    During the late 1800's and early 1900's, emigrants from Trentino found work in the coal mines surrounding the Las Animas County town of Trinidad (Hastings, Ludlow, Primero, Starkville, Segundo), located 15 miles from the Colorado - New Mexico border.

    This is a photo of Hastings, Colorado, where Elmer, George, and Mary Sherfick were born. The mine was abandoned in the 1920's, and by the 1950's, most traces of the town had disappeared.
