Typical of many western towns, the immigrants to Trinidad were seeking the plentiful work available in the many mines or railroads of the area. Settling down at the turn of the 20th century, the city is known for having a thriving Italian culture to this day, though as is the case with many American cities once densely populated by immigrants, the community has spread out over the years. One business of note is Rino’s Italian Restaurant & Steakhouse, where the waiters sing in Italian while serving food. Other Italian-American owned businesses still exist in the area, and while driving through one can spot Italian flag themed artwork across the city.
