Pasaquan - Home of St. EOM

St. EOM's Home called Pasaquan. This guy was a living legend until he shot himself a few years back. Born in Buena Vista in the early part of the century, Abused by his father, he ran away to Greenwich Village in the '30s, became a prostitute, and returned to Buena Vista after his mother died to create Pasaquan and St. EOM. Told fortunes for a living and recreated his childhood home creating statues of dubious Indian origin. He had a dancing pit where he would perform, built walls and painted them in primary Sherman Williams colors. Never paid taxes, grew marijuana. It's an aberation by New York standards, but that is nothing to the striking contrast when viewed against the backdrop of Buena Vista Georgia, a monument in itself. The town economy is basically fueled by a chicken processing plant and a clothing enterprise whose major outlet is QVC.
