Hastings, Oklahoma: A Glimpse into the Heart of America's Farming Past
Tucked away in Jefferson County lies Hastings, Oklahoma, a small town with deep historical roots stretching back to the early 1900s.

The town's renaming to Hastings was a nod to the Nebraska hometown of some residents and to avoid postal mix-ups with another Baird in Indian Territory.
