Plaque reads:

'This church is the oldest architectonically  relevant building of the area. The tabernacle shaped facade, made in square stone ashlars, and the tiny walled-up door on the left flank are from the Middle Ages. Inside, the church was completely rebuilt in an imitation medieval style. A wide lowered arch parts the lobby, where she baptismal font is, and the hall. The mural paintings of the lower portion of the walls imitate fake marble mirrors, while they create on the bottom wall a pointed arch and a medieval style shrine. The two doors leading to the sacristy are topped by the portraits of the saints to whom the church is devoted'

Bodie

Gold was discovered here in 1859 by W. S. Bodey after whom the town was named. Once the most thriving metropolis of the Mono Country, Bodie's mines produced gold valued at more than 100 million dollars. Tough as nails, "the bad man from Bodie" still carries his guns and bowie knife down through the pages of western history.

California registered historical landmark no. 341

Plaque placed by the California State Park Commission in cooperation with the Mono County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Mono County Historical Society. September 12, 1964

Return to Bodie

During the California Gold Rush, E Clampus Vitus was a fraternal order and benevolence society for miners. It was rumored to be one of the secret societies in the town of Bodie during its heyday.

Today, ECV is dedicated to the preservation of California history and accordingly, member of the present day Bodie Chapter were instrumental in preserving the town as a historic landmark. With their help in 1956, legislation was drafted to add Bodie to the state park system. By 1962 the process was complete, and one year later, Bodie was included in the National Registry of Historic sites. In 1964, during an elaborate ceremony, Bodie was dedicated as a state historic park.

Unfortunately after 34 winders, several of the monuments unveiled during that ceremony were damaged--prompting a return to Bodie by the ECV. This original monument was repaired, relocated, and rededicated as a California sesquicentennial event.
