Significance: The Ghost Town of Bodie is a Registered National Historic Landmark and California Historical Landmark #341. Placer gold was first discovered here in July 1859 and a quartz vein 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 and the population reached 10-12 thousand. Total production of gold and silver is estimated at 90-100 million.
