STATE HISTORIC PARK
Located 7 miles north of Conway Summit off US 395,

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".
