Nothing Settlement Reviews
A Town named by a bunch of drunks Feb 07, 2011
On a recent trip to Las Vegas, my family and I, drove through the southwestern desert landscape. During the 400 plus mile drive, the country- side changed from the fairly flat typical desert terrain to the more rolling area and then the hillier landscape with its canyons around Lake Mead. A long the way, we made a stop at the remnants of what was a settlement that no longer exists. The town was called "Nothing". A sign on a ramshuckled house indicated the population of the town is 4.
History records that the settlement was established in the late 1970s on the far eastern Mohave county in Arizona. There is not much history on the town itself. However my research led me to some information on Wikipedia. The information is that, The Arizona department of transportation installed one of four motorist call boxes on U.S. 93 at Nothing. The town sign read:
“Town of Nothing Arizona. Founded 1977. Elevation 3269ft.
The staunch citizens of Nothing are full of Hope, Faith, and Believe in the work ethic. Thru-the-years-these dedicated people had faith in Nothing, hoped for Nothing, worked at Nothing, for Nothing.”
Do not expect much, because there is literally nothing here except for the sign and a run down structure.
PS: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
