Gold was discovered here in 1859 by Wm. S. Bodey, after whom the town was named, and the town became the most thriving metropolis of the Mono country. Bodie’s mines produced gold valued at more than 100 million dollars. Today a state park, Bodie is one of the best known of the west’s ‘ghost towns.’
