Inscription
It began as the county hospital in Bodie in 1879. With the decline of Bodie in the mid 1880's, the hospital was moved eventually to a site east of this monument and Highway 395 to the rear of the small meadow that you see. At that time it became known as the "Poor Farm", a refuge for the aged, ill, and penniless. It continued to operate for several years, but the high cost of maintaining the facility forced its closure and the building and property were put up for bid and sold to a local rancher.
