Sioux Falls, SD
Trying to play a bit of catch-up with my blogs.
We learned that Hastings was formed in 1872 at the junction of two railroads. It was named after Thomas D. Hastings, a railroad construction engineer. Hastings was a rough, tough boom town and grew to a population of 2800 by 1880. As of 2011, there were 24,788 persons living in Hastings.
As you read this blog, we've moved on to visit our new "home state" of South Dakota. We made about a 5 1/2 hour drive up to Sioux Falls, SD on Sunday. We'll be touring the area for the next 8 days. Hopefully, I can do a better job of keeping up with the blog in a more timely fashion.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
