Ghost town photo from Bodie California

In 1859, prospectors chasing rumors of mineral wealth found gold east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their discovery gave rise to Bodie, one of the West's wildest gold mining boomtowns. By 1880 the phrase "Badman from Bodie" described the town's rambunctious inhabitants, earning the community a reputation for violence that rivaled Tombstone, Deadwood and Dodge City.

This kit is based loosely on a structure found in Bodie, California. Since it's tough (or impossible) to know what the structure originally was used for I named it after one of my close friends and mentor.

Update: This was originally the Swazey Hotel, later a casino, and then a clothing store. After seeing more photos than the original one I had worked from this is only similar to the original building, not exact.
