Additional Details:
Located 18 miles northeast of beautiful Mono Lake, at an altitude of 8,374 feet, this famous old mining town once boasted a population of over 10,000 and a reputation for being the wildest of all High Sierra gold camps. Wm. S. Bodie, after whom the town was named, first found golf here in 1859. Subsequently, over $25,000,000 was taken from this region. The few remaining historic buildings here survived the disastrous fire of 1932 --- R.D
