Ervings Location, New Hampshire
Erving's Location is situated in Coos County, New Hampshire. In New Hampshire, locations, grants, townships (which are different from towns), and purchases are unincorporated portions of a county which are not part of any town and have limited self-government (if any, as many are uninhabited).
As of the 2000 census, one person lived here. However, in a recent "Sunday News" New Hampshire newspaper edition (printed on June 27, 2004), Suzan Collins, the Coos County administrator, said the following about Erving's Location: "We're required to do an inventory of property lists and there isn't anyone who is a registered resident. I don't know how the census picks this up." She also said that the only taxable property in Erving's Location are telephone poles. Some have speculated that the census statistics for Erving's Location could have been a computer glitch.
There is a dirt road that starts at New Hampshire's route 26 in Millsfield just north of a pond and ends to the west in Erving's Location's northeast corner. It is the only way to get to Erving's Location without hiking.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the location has a total area of 9.5 km² (3.7 mi²). None of the area is covered with water. It is bordered to the east by Mount Kelsey in Millsfield, although Mount Kelsey's western slopes are actually within the boundaries of Erving's Location.
As of the census2 of 2000, one person lives here. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town is one of only four places in the United States to have a population of 1. The others are Hibberts, Maine, Lost Springs, Wyoming, and New Amsterdam, Indiana.
