The Schoolhouse at Bodie SHP
Bodie State Historic Park is an authentic gold mining ghost town. The buildings are in "arrested decay", they are not being maintained, they are being left to the whims of the elements. Only 5% of the original buildings still remain due to 2 devastating fires.The town dates from the mid-1800's and was finally abandoned in the 1940's. It is interesting to peek through the windows of the buildings and see how people lived in the past. This is the town's school building.
