History

The city was named for James Wardner, promoter of a local mine.[2]

In 1892, and again in 1899, angry union miners converged on the Bunker Hill mine during confrontations with mine owners.

Hard rock miners in Shoshone County protested wage cuts with a strike in 1892. After several lost their lives in a shooting war provoked by discovery of a company spy, the U.S. army forced an end to the strike. Hostilities erupted once again in 1899 when, in response to the company firing seventeen men for joining the union, the miners dynamited the Bunker Hill & Sullivan mill. Again, lives were lost, and the army intervened.
