The settlement was established in 1977, located 100 miles northwest of Phoenix Arizona, and roughly 20 miles south
of Wikieup, the "rattlesnake capital of Arizona." It is west of Bagdad at milepost 148½ on U.S. Route 93 (the Joshua
Forest Scenic Parkway) between Wickenburg and Kingman, on the route from Las Vegas to Phoenix.
Nothing once contained a gas station and small convenience store.
Nothing was abandoned by May 2005, and by August 2008, the gas station was beginning to collapse. An attempted
revival of Nothing occurred at some time after August 2008 when Nothing was purchased by Mike Jensen. By April
2009, Jensen had opened his pizza business, run from a portable oven, with hopes of reopening the mini-mart and
creating accommodations for RVs.
As of April 2011, it appears that Nothing has once again been abandoned. The building has fresh boards in the
windows, and no sign of inhabitance or any activity.
