BODIE STATE HISTORIC PARK
760.647.6445

Located 7 miles north of Conway Summit off US 395, then take paved road for 10 miles then 3 miles on a dirt road. Bodie was named after Waterman S. Bodey (also known as William S. Bodey), who discovered gold there in 1859. The town rose to prominence with the decline of mining along the western slope of the Sierra Nevada. Only about five percent of the buildings during its 1880 heyday still remain. Today it stands just as time, fire, and the elements have left it — a genuine California gold-mining ghost town. Designated a State Historic Park in 1962, it is now maintained in a state of "arrested decay".
