HASTINGS, TX (BRAZORIA COUNTY)
HASTINGS, TEXAS (Brazoria County). Hastings is a residential community that is now within Pearland on State Highway 35 in northern Brazoria County. It was just east of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. The community was the site of a rural school named for a pioneer family before the development of the nearby Hastings oilfield in 1934. In 1949 it was an oilfield community centered around a recycling plant of the Stanolind Oil Company. The local population subsequently declined, and by 1982 only an abandoned railroad station and scattered dwellings remained at the site.
