Big name, small town

One hundred and seventy five years ago this week, James Frederick Wardner was born on May 19, 1846 and proceeded to live anything but a dull and idle life. Jim Wardner, the namesake of Wardner, Idaho, detailed his time in the Silver Valley in his autobiography which was released in 1900.
