Twentieth Century Folk Art Environments (Thematic) - Nitt Witt Ridge
California State Historic Landmark 939
#939 Nitt Witt Ridge
Nitt Witt Ridge, one of California's remarkable twentieth century folk art environments, is the creation of Arthur Harold Beal (Der Tinkerpaw or Capt. Nitt Witt), a Cambria Pines pioneer, who sculpted the land using hand tools and indigenous materials, remarkable inventiveness, and self-taught skills. A blend of native materials and contemporary elements, impressive in its sheer mass and meticulous placement, it is a revealing memorial to Art's unique cosmic humor and zest for life.
Nitt Witt Ridge, 881 Hillcrest Dr, Cambria Pines.
