The Berwind Jail house, Historic Mountain Coal Mining town, Ghost Town, Berwind (Las Animas County) Colorado....The Berwind Coal Mine, also known as El Moro No. 2, was located in Southeastern Colorado, in Las Animas County between Aguilar and Trinidad. It produced coking grade coal for CF&I coke oven plants located nearby. The Berwind Mine opened in 1890 and was closed in 1928 during a CF&I effort to centralize productions to increase efficiency. During its 38 years of operation it produced 9,076,980 tons of coal. The Coal Miner's life was very hard and they were heavy drinkers then. There was a lot of crime in this area, it is no wonder the company had it's own Jail. The cells are small about 5X7 and the only windows are. as you see them here. One of the bars on the jail house window is bent and cut...an obvious attempt to break out a prisoner......Las Animas County has the largest area of the 64 counties of the State of Colorado of the United States. Las Animas County takes its name from the Mexican Spanish name of the Purgatoire River, originally called El R�o de las �nimas Perdidas en Purgatorio, which means "River of the Lost Souls in Purgatory." The county's population was 15,207 at the 2000 census.The county seat is Trinidad.
