Located 13 miles to the north is the camp of Wonder, a major mining center in the early years of the 20th Century. Thomas J. Stroud and several others made the first locations in April 1906, and later that year, the Wonder Mining District was organized. Wonder’s boom from 1906 to 1915 was brief, but spectacular. Stores and saloons were in operation by mid-summer 1906, and a school was begun in 1907. Bench Creek provided water for the camp and an ice plant and a swimming pool made lire somewhat more bearable. During a brief span of years, the Nevada Wonder Mining Company produced some $6 million in silver, gold, copper, and zinc. Wonder’s most prominent native daughter is Eva Adams (1908-1991), Administrative Assistant to Senator Patrick A. McCarran for many and the second woman appointed as the Director of the U.S. Mint during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations.

Condition: Excellent

A stock certificate is issued by businesses, usually companies. A stock is part of the permanent finance of a business. Normally, they are never repaid, and the investor can recover his/her money only by selling to another investor. Most stocks, or also called shares, earn dividends, at the business's discretion, depending on how well it has traded. A stockholder or shareholder is a part-owner of the business that issued the stock certificates.
