The Great Dismal Swamp lies across the Virginia and North Carolina border.
It is bordered by Norfolk, Va on the north and Elizabeth City on the south.
Casa de Hoot is not far from the western side of the swamp in NC.
Most (if not all) of the swamp is already a National Wildlife Refuge that spans over 100,000 acres.
They say that George Washington surveyed most of the land in the 1700's.
In 1973, the company I used to work for donated nearly 50,000 acres and shortly thereafter it was declared a national wildlife refuge.
Not a bad place to live but it is out in the sticks.
