About Nitt Witt Ridge in Cambria, California

Nitt Witt Ridge sounds like a great place for a hike on the rolling hills above Cambia, but actually it’s a house. For many years this was the home of the town’s garbage collector and he used materials that others would throw away to build what might be the strangest home in California. The unique walkways, stairs, outdoor spaces, and arches add to the strange aura of Nitt Witt Ridge. The creator of this oddity was Art Beal who passed away in 1992 at the age of 96. Before he passed, the state registered it as a California Historical Landmark and the current owners give tours for a modest suggested donation. Nitt Witt Ridge is something you have to see.
