The Enormous Impact of Two Icons
The Old Man of the Mountain became the state’s official emblem in 1945. Moreover, it was a leading attraction for both residents and visitors to New Hampshire. When the formation fell on May 3, 2003, we lost a symbol as well as a leading revenue generator. Everyone from the governor to town officials had an opinion about how to venerate the Old Man. Enter Dick Hamilton, dean of New England tourism marketers. On Thursday, Aug. 17, at 7:00 p.m., Mark Okrant presents a discussion at the Museum of the White Mountains on 34 Highland Street in Plymouth. This is a hybrid event, and registration for Zoom is required. Please visit nhhumanities.org to register.
