Bodie Methodist

Methodist Church, Bodie State Historic Park, California

If you’re able to visit the remote California state park of Bodie, one of the first buildings you’ll see in this ghost town is the Methodist Church.  The structure was completed in 1882 and was one of two churches in the town.  Supposedly there were approximately 65 saloons among them too.  Bodie had effectively emptied of people by the early 1930s.  It was abandoned for a couple of decades before the state took it over and created a park in 1962.  There was some vandalism of the church during those deserted years, but generally it’s well protected today.
