We came thru this little town years ago on a whim. My husband is a musician and heard that this town centers around music. He headed down to the square and was invited into a music circle.
Jammed with them for hours.
When we decided to start looking for a retirement town, we would drive around Arkansas and always ended up back in Mt View.
We bought our house there 5 years ago. Make the 6 hour drive once a month.
The people are friendly, the scenery beautiful. Our own little "Brigadoon" before we have to leave it to head back to the city. 3 years and we will be full time residents.
If you are even a few hours drive away, add a "Via Point" on your GPS and head to Mt View.
