4/9 Big Bald

South of Big Bald

From 1802 to 1824, the bald was inhabited by a cranky hermit, David Greer. Spurned by a woman, he retreated to the mountaintop where he lived in a small, cave-like structure and declared himself sovereign of the mountain. He killed a man only to be later shot himself in the back by the local blacksmith. 'Greer Bald' was eventually renamed Big Bald.
