People often ask, "When is a good time to visit Meher Mount?" I always say the wintertime. It is is my favorite time of year.
The weather is crisp, but generally not too cold. The air is clear - the fog of summer is gone. The skies are bright blue. And there is a special "winter" light on the land.
After the October 14, 1985, New Life Fire at Meher Mount destroyed all the buildings, new living quarters were needed for Agnes Baron, the then caretaker. As an interim solution, a trailer was brought on the property for her residence.
However, with time, pests and use, the trailer deteriorated. In September 2007, the trailer was removed before it became a safety hazard at a cost of $4,000.
