Bodie became famous around 1877 as a prosperous gold mining town. At it's peak there were almost 7,000 people and the mines took out around 34 million in gold. Now it's just a ghost town and through the years has survived numerous fires, theft and vandalism. It remains a very popular tourist destination.
Erected in 1879, this building served as a general store. It was owned by Harvey Boone, a direct descendant of Daniel Boone. Harvey was a great horse fancier and also owned the Boone Stable and Livery business.
