It's a community of new-age anarchist squatters (or at least it used to be). I haven't been down to the area, don't know the people, and can't vouch for what it's like. I just remember reading about them several years ago in a local paper. It looks like it's still active in some form, and Michigan is home-schooling friendly.
Michigan IS a great homeshool state. Though anarchists don't sound very rule-oriented?

Though it is the level of off-the-wall I am looking for.

At least give us some ideas. Thank you.

I'd advise a small town with section 8 housing in a depopulated region. Scandanavians do tend to be quiet. Iowa, South Dakota perhaps?

Quiet Scandinavians.

I heard that twice now on this thread.

Certainly an interesting bit of information.

Thank you.

Iowa is also a great homeschool state.

For those that do not know:

If I was extremely poor, I'd probably look in Aroostook County, Maine. Its very cheap to live there. Very little riff raff. Clean air and well water- plenty of water, trees for wood, and arable land though the growing season is short. Also, the possibility of going to Canada for healthcare is there.

How about an established intentional community that's been there for 45 years?

The Farm Community • Living in Community Since 1971

Well, NY is THE worst state for homeschool, actually, not the best. Not even workable. We actually STARTED in NY and had to leave when our kid was turning 3.

The one you are talking about is not even in your link.

The only thing in your link is apartments (which we do NOT want!) for rich people!

Thanks for trying, but not really sure why you posted this....

Would be nice, if we were rich

Sadly, we need to find something for poor people that happen to be clean and law-abiding.
