Hi Peach

That building that you came across going east out of Bodie was once a stage stop / toll road station, going farther east and you would have come upon Austin (once the capital of NV/ and or the Calif county seat. There was some dispute about were the border of CA/NV was at the time) Not much there now as mining and salvagers (during ww2) have removed most of the town if not all it by now (it was mostly brick) But there is a very interesting grave yard there with some very resent plantings and a Nv state Senator. Also that road was the main road during the day that most of the heavy mining equipment was brought in on.

This is all from my brain clutter locker.

Mark.
