In 1859 William S Bodey discovered gold near here. A mill was soon established and the town began to grow. By 1880 an estimated 10,000 people lived here.

After a while the mixture of money, gold, and alcohol was often fatal.

It is estimated that one person a day died in Bodie… Moral of this story…don’t drink and shoot … it could be hazardous to your health.. 🙂
