Moving to Bodie???

"Good-bye God...I'm going to Bodie!"
excerpt from the diary of young girl who's family moved to Bodie

This is the Methodist chuch in Bodie...
As I mentioned yesterday...Bodie was a rough town...
but it's my understanding that Bodie also had quite a number of churches in its heyday...

The quote is an actual quote from a little girl's diary.
She wrote it upon learning from her parents that they were moving to Bodie...
The town was such a rough town that she interpreted it as
being doomed to a Godless town.

  3. Great photo and I enjoyed the tidbit about moving to Bodie! Thanks for sharing.

  4. The church is lovely, but the rest of the town gives me the creeps. We've been there about 4 or 5 times now...

  5. What a cool old church. Nice photo!

  6. It feels like an enduring church after all this time.

  7. I wouldn't want to move there, but I sure would like to visit for a while. It's been much too long.
    Nice photo Kathryn!
