Gold was discovered here in 1859 by W.S. Bodey after whom the town was named. Once the most thriving metropolis of the Mono Country, Bodie's mines produced gold valued at more than 100 million dollars. Tough as nails, the "Bad Man from Bodie" still carries his guns and his Bowie knife down through the pages of Western history.
