The Methodist Church was built in 1878 on the corner of Green & Fuller Streets in Bodie, California. This according to the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS). At the time the town was in the midst of a gold mining boom and housed 10 to 12 thousand people. The town subsequently went bust and the entire place became a state park in 1962.
