Lost Sopris with author Genevieve Faoro-Johannsen Pt 2

Before the Flood The lost town of Sopris lies silently beneath the depths of Trinidad Lake. Once a thriving mining community in the late 1800s, it was renowned for abundant coal deposits and a bustling population. Three generations called Sopris home. They fought in the Civil War, homesteaded and immigrated to work in the mines. Unfortunately, the town's fate took a drastic turn with the construction of the Trinidad Dam, which flooded the area and submerged the town. Authors Genevieve Faoro-Johannsen and Robert Daniel Vigil, Jr. preserve an enduring legacy of community and resilience through first-hand accounts, historic photos and never-before-seen maps.

Genevieve Faoro-Johannsen's Italian grandfather began his career working in the Sopris mine. Her grandmother was born in Sopris to a Sicilian immigrant. She graduated from Pueblo South High School and attended the University of St. Mary (Saint Mary College) in Leavenworth, Kansas, earning a Liberal Arts degree.
