I am working on a project and am hoping that some of you can help me. Does anyone have any information regarding Nobody's Mountain? I have tried numerous online search engines and continue to come up empty. I am especially interested in hearing from individuals who lived in or near the area.

There are a few of that tribe that still live around here.
Neil Callum lives in Rickman
Eric Feliz VonBittswan in Overton County
to name a few.
I think Adam Turtle lives in Summmertown
and the famous Jack Stoddard were there at one time or another I believe.
Get in touch with Jack if he is in the area.
He would certainly be able to tell you the whole story but
he travels extensively as his photographs are shown all across the United States and abroad in Museums and art exhibits.
I knew a few others personally and they were good people. Young and wanting to live an adventurous life , they came here from places like Miami - Georgia - and other southern locales.

I remember riding motorcycles up there. the hippies would run their micro buses up the trail then live in them. This was the 70's. I think there was a movement of the anti-Vietnam type that wanted to live a "communal" life. We would be riding and come upon a couple of girls topless :) I remember the log cabin and the chestnut tree. There was a blight of chestnuts but i guess this one was so far from others it didn't get sick.

I thought the Cathlic Church of New York owned it for a while?
