I have always had a passion for history. To say I was thrilled when I heard there was a ghost town just a short drive from the Double Eagle is a serious understatement. But Bodie isn’t just any ghost town, it is the largest unrestored ghost town in the country! Meaning it has been almost completely untouched since its inhabitants left (Over 100 years ago for some of the buildings!)
Abandoned school house, the big wooden ball in the foreground is a Globe!
I love the overalls, the beds were all tiny!
The whole town looked like this. It is as if everybody just left at once without taking one thing with them.
Some big old mining machinery…
Car is not for sale. I checked.
This is just a tiny glimpse of all the cool things you will see at Bodie. When you go make sure you are aware of the weather conditions, bring some water, and prepare for some serious time travel!
