Video: This Eerie, 140-Year-Old Ghost Town is Stuck in Time. Would You Visit?

Bodie, CA is a town forgotten by time. Founded in 1876 on the eastern foothills of the Sierra Nevada, this once-bustling mining village had around 10,000 residents in its heyday.  

As one of the most well-preserved ghost towns in the USA, Bodie is now a historical national park with about 200,000 yearly visitors. 

But what makes Bodie especially spooky? Probably the fact that every nook and cranny still contains items that presumably belonged to the town's ghostly residents. Indeed, it seems as if the villagers just vanished into thin air in the middle of the day, leaving their beds unmade, bars stocked and classrooms equipped for the next lesson. 

Take a look at this short video tour through the eerie town of Brodie, brought to you by Great Big Story.
