Welcome sign as you enter Potter County, Pennsylvania.
In the early 1990’s, Potter County was home to an Aryan Nations leader named August Kreis III who found it’s vast pinelands, coined “God’s Country”, and it’s majority white population to be the perfect setting for a base of operations.
In 1993, approximately 350 Nazi and racist skinheads attended Aryan Summerfest, a hard-core white supremacist "hate rock" festival that August Kreis III hosted at his semi-rural "Last Outpost," consisting of three trailers, a woodshop and a shooting range on 10.4 acres in Potter County, Pennsylvania.
Later, Kreis hosted the 2002 Aryan Nations World Congress, an agglomeration of skinheads, Klansmen, Nazis and white power bands. Kreis played a key role in spreading white supremacy in Potter County and advocated the mass murder of Jews, non-whites and race traitors until 2009 when he moved from Potter County, to Lexington, South Carolina.
