  • The gold fever of the mid-19th century that spurred people from all over the world to travel to the American west in search of riches left many an abandoned settlement in its wake. Left to gather dust when the gold gave out--or was never found--these lost villages stand frozen in time as testaments to American history. Made by the History Channel in cooperation with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this installment of the Save our History series travels to Montana and northern California, visiting ghost towns created during the gold rush and the railroad boom. Bodie, California, provides a quintessential example of the haunting nature of these historical relics, where the excitement of the prospectors is evident in hastily constructed structures that have nonetheless withstood the tests of time. Archive and location footage is combined with expert interviews to give voice to this essential chapter in American history.
