Bodie, California flourished as a gold mining town in the 1880's to 1890's. But by 1915 it was a ghost town after its inhabitants abandoned it and their shattered dreams. Today, as a National Historic Landmark, it remains in arrested decay. The 116-year-old Standard Mill is mostly intact, including this crucible from which melted gold was poured into ingot molds.
