Assay office and other buildings of the Standard were intact and in use until the eve of WWII. Bodie is a relatively "new" ghost town. A few hardy residents occupied homes into the early 1950s. In this region of California and Nevada, there are many families with strong roots at Bodie, Masonic, and Aurora. Mining is still underway in the Aurora district.
