The Mountain Hope initiative in Powell County focuses on the small community of Nada. Community residents are proud of the hand-carved Nada Tunnel, which is on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as the gateway to the Red River Gorge. Originally a logging community, Nada is now home to just over 50 families. Mountain Hope operates out of the Nada Baptist Mission, a mission of First Baptist Church of Winchester, Kentucky. A jewerly making co-op, GORGEous Gals, began in Nada in the fall of 2008. Read more about this enterprise here.
