Christopher Knight, the North Pond Hermit, Lived near Knight Court


The Kennebec Journal has this map showing the location of the hermit's encampment, at the terminus of McNally Lane, near Little Pond (which connects to North Pond). Knight Court is the junction between Route 225 and McNally and is named for the Knight family of Rome.

The "hermit's" compound was .02 miles from the nearest house, and yet we are told that his presence was unknown both to the landowner on which he had pitched his tent and to all of the neighbors (including those who owned dogs which would, presumably, have been intrigued by the scent of cached hamburger).  

How Knight came to choose this ideal location to elude authortities for 27 years is another of the case's many interesting questions.
