Remembering NH's Old Man of the Mountain
Sunday marks the 12th anniversary of the Old Man of the Mountain collapsing in Franconia Notch.
The rock formation was an iconic symbol for New Hampshire for nearly 100 years until it fell to pieces in May of 2003. With the help of The Legacy Fund and the NH Division of Parks & Recreation, a “lasting legacy of remembrance” remains in the White Mountains.
A visitor attraction in Franconia Notch now honors the Old Man with seven steel "profilers" that recreate the visage of the Old Man overlooking the mountains.
The profilers are part of a plaza which is filled with hundreds of engraved memories of people who love "The Great Stone Face".
The Legacy fund plans to expand the memorial in the future.
