Bodie

Bodie, a farming community just southwest of Longview in east central Gregg County, was established around 1900 as a station on the International-Great Northern Railroad. It was named for Gabriel Augustus (Bodie) Bodenheim, long-time mayor of Longview. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, several stores, a mill, and a number of houses. In the early 1990s Bodie was a dispersed rural community, and many of the area's residents worked in nearby Longview.
