26 Thursday, May 8, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Out Esmeralda Way by Carol Sirnes Good morning out there! It's another beautiful, breezy day. Colorful spring flowers are popping up all over this Nixon 7 wingfldd building area, along with new shoots of bamboo (transplanted from Pahrump several years ago), in this writer's backyard! We have an update from Jon Aurich who is doing restoration on two old buildings here in Goldfield - the Nixon & Wingfield building and the Telegraph Office. The Nixon & Wingfield building was built in the sum- mer of 1907 by George S. Nixon and George Wingfield. These two men organized the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Co. in 1906, and housed the same in the building. George Wingfield also lived in his private apartment on the third floor from 1907-08. "The Consolidated," as it was known to many, was the 12th largest corporation in the U.S. and paid out to its stockholders over $29 million in dividends from 1906-27. The Nixon & Wingfield building is a three-story rhyo- lite stone structure. Restoration is almost complete on the exterior of the building and the first floor should be complete in about five weeks. An update on the telegraph building soon. Diane Shimp, librarian Silver Peak School May Calendar No charging of hot lunches after Friday, May 16.
