yog256a.jpg Bodie State Historic Park is a genuine California gold-mining ghost town located in Mono County. Once a thriving town with a population of 10,000, only a small portion of the town survives today. What is left of the town of Bodie are preserved in a state of “arrested decay” — interiors remain as they were left, stocked with goods and exteriors are maintained only enough to keep the buildings as close to the way they were when the area was designated a National Historic Site and State Historic Park in 1962.

The history of Bodie is vibrant and colorful and the town’s legacy as a Wild West icon is everlasting. With a diverse population close to 10,000 at the town’s peak in 1880, industrious miners and successful businessman rubbed shoulders with notorious gunfighters and nefarious gamblers. From the tales of the initial discoverer, whose life ended tragically, to the development of electrically powered gold mines and vicious gunfights, the story of Bodie is sure to interest all members of a group or family.
