New Mountain, a farming community on State Highway 155 ten miles northeast of Gilmer in northeastern Upshur County, was probably established sometime after 1900. By the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and a number of houses. After World War II the school was consolidated with the Gilmer school district, and by the mid-1960s only a church and a few scattered houses remained. The estimated population in 1966 was fifty. No further population estimates were available until 2000 when the population was listed as twenty.
