One of America’s most beautiful abandoned town, now a protected State Historic Park, is Bodie, located east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Mono County, California.

Bodie was founded by W. S. Bodey, initially as a mining camp, after he discovered gold near a place that is now called Bodie Bluff in 1859. Unfortunately, the poor man died in a snow storm that very winter and never saw the rise of the town that was named after him. Legend has it that a sign painter misspelled the name as “Bodie”, while other sources claim that the change in spelling was deliberate in order to ensure correct pronunciation.
