Bodie, California

Bodie was a gold rush town in the 1880’s and boomed to a population of 10,000 people, all hoping to make their fortune. Rumoured to have had 65 saloons, the town attracted miners, shopkeepers, newspapermen, prostitutes and gunslingers from all over America – and allegedly there was a man killed every day there.
In the 1960’s, the State of California took over the town and have held it in its state of ‘arrested decay’ ever since.
