Dynamo Plant and Pond

Completed December 1, 1892, by the Standard Consolidated Mining Company, this hydro-electric generating plant began operation in October 1893. Electricity was transmitted over a 13 mile line to the mining company's 20 stamp mill at Bodie. This facility was one of the first of its kind in this country.
