Rockland County, New York, 207 Shares Capital Stock Certificate I/U, Black print without any border, Large vignette at top of mining facility in country side, Fine-VF condition with damage to top right corner and splitting at fold lines as well as stains from tape mounting the certificate to black backing.. The Sterling Iron and Railway Company, which was situated in Ramapo (Rockland County), New York, operated under various names from 1736 until 1923. Early records indicate the original name of the firm was Sterling Forge and Furnace Company. This company can trace its history back to 1736 when Cornelius Board and Timothy Ward obtained 150 acres of the Sterling tract and built a bloomery and forge, turning out the first iron made at Sterling. Business at Sterling continued as usual during the 1830s and 1840s and little of consequence occurred until 1856 when the Townsends decided to sell the ironworks. A nine-page pamphlet entitled ÒA Map: Showing the Location of the Sterling Iron Estate, Orange County, New YorkÓ was published and sent to prominent men in the iron industry. Rare and early Rockland County Stock Certificate from this historic company.
