Nothing was a small unincorporated settlement in far eastern Mohave County, Arizona, United States with four inhabitants. The locals told travelers it "got named by a bunch of drunks.
The settlement was established in 1977, located 50 miles north of Phoenix Arizona and roughly 20 miles south of Wikieup, the “rattlesnake capitol of Arizona.” It is west of Bagdad, Arizona at Mile Post 148 1/2 on U.S. Route 93, The Joshua Forest Scenic Parkway, between Wickenburg and Kingman, on the route from Las Vegas, NV to Phoenix, AZ.
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) installed one of four motorist callboxes 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.
Commerce and attractions
The entire population ran a gas stop and garage. The gas station had a flat bed truck selling rocks and minerals found nearby as local souvenirs. Behind the gas station, down the embankment, was a small scrap heap. The gas station also had a cage of live canaries that were quite talkative, as well as other comedic artifacts.
According to a listing on the RoadsideAmerica.com website, dated 29 May 2007, the settlement of Nothing has been abandoned. An update on the same website, dated 18 August 2008, confirms that the settlement is abandoned and the gas station building is in a state of collapse.
