Significance: The Ghost Town of Bodie is a Registered Historic Landmark and California Historical Landmark #341. Placer gold was first discovered here in July, 1859 and a quartz vein was located in August, 1859; but, though many efforts were made to exploit the area, it was not until 1874 that the great potential wealth of the district became promising. Bodie reached its peak in production in 1879-80 when the population was 10-12 thousand. Total production of gold and silver from the district is estimated at 90-100 million. The Johl Residence represents a typical home of a prosperous business man in the Town of Bodie.
