Nothing, Arizona - The Inevitable Return Of Nothing
Town Named Nothing:

A former pig farmer purchased the six-acre site, cleaned away most of the garbage, and put up a sign outside of its empty mini-mart "that promises a new Nothing is coming soon."

Town of Nothing

We've driven past Nothing many times on the way from Phoenix to Las Vegas. There's a sign for the town, one small building, a large graded parking area, and a cell phone tower with solar power panels. Sometimes there's a truck or two parked there. For the last few years there've been some big piles of gravel there, as if someone was going to resurface the parking area, but it hasn't happened yet.

Memories of Nothing

While staying in Lake Havasu City in 1998 I looked at a map that showed a town named "Nothing." I told my wife, "We have to see that," and headed off. When we got there an old man with a World War II veteran hat greeted us. We bought some soda and chocolate bars just to be polite.

We wandered around and saw the Nothing Taxi (a shell of a Model A Ford) and some cages with signs that warned, "Danger: Copperheads." When we looked inside the cages we saw copper pennies with the head of Lincoln on them. We're glad we got to see this unique place before everyone left and it was abandoned.

Not much remains. There is a wide turnout area off of Route 93 at this location, making it an easy stop for an interesting photo.

Nothing sign.

Nothing, Arizona

There's a giant, worn vintage sign that says "Nothing," along with an old abandoned fuel station, on the highway going north. Plenty of room to pull off and take photos.

Nothing, Arizona is living up to its name -- no businesses, no residents, and just a bit of ironic signage clinging to posts. But hold on -- is that a solar power array in the background?
