The Trail of Broken Hearts
Paul Kirby / Kirby Books


6 x 9 - 188 Pages

Subtitle: Surveying, Building and Settling the Hastings Colonization Road

“In driving along the Hastings Road today, it is one long trail of abandoned farms, adversity, blasted hopes, broken hearts, and exhausted ambition,” wrote C.F. Aylsworth, O.L.S, in 1925.

“And the mute evidence of it all is empty, dilapidated and abandoned houses and barns, orchards, wells, old broken down stone and wooden fences, root cellars and many other similar evidences of having given up the ghost.”

In his new book Hastings County author Paul Kirby provides new insight into the surveying, building and settling of the Hastings Road from the Tudor/Madoc townships boundary through the settlements of Millbridge, Thanet, Glanmire, Murphy’s Corners, Umfraville, Ormsby, L’Amable, York River, and Doyle’s Corners.
