Lecture Series: “DID YA KNOW”, Mr. Epimonondus P. Stinkwater

September 5 @ 7:00 pm

$5

“DID YA KNOW”

Description: A compilation of little known Comstock facts that generate a lot of discussion and a maybe a small amount of BS. Mr. Stinkwater will present a series of historic facts to generate discussion and support the facts with photographs to illustrate the premise.

Bio: Mr. Epimonondus P. Stinkwater moved to VC in 1858.  Now at 168 years old his recollections are still sharp as a tack. He bought a building that hadn’t been built yet and opened a museum dedicated to the history of life on the Comstock, which hadn’t even begun till 1859. A man of great vision and foresight he grew up amidst the miners, hooligans, ladies of the night, Bonanza Kings, and various Nare-Do-Wells. Infatuated with the history of the Comstock and began collecting old photos of the area back in the day.
