My friend Maggie Montgomery made Bankersmith a destination by living there for fifteen years, creating a venue in the middle of nowhere, complete with house concerts, BBQ and Sunday jams. She was evicted from Bankersmith yesterday so the bikers could take over what she created. Somehow, that got left out of the story....her son, Monte Montgomery, held concerts and reunions of his Montiacs there several times a year. The BBQ guy is the one who sold her out to Doug Guller. There is no justice. There was no 'long abandoned' town. It was full of life and laughter and beer, and it was Maggie's home.
