20 Years Ago

The Old Man of the Mountain Remembered (he fell 20 years ago May 3rd 2003)

The Old Man of the Mountain

was a beloved symbol of New Hampshire.

A landmark, tourists stopped near to

take a picture of his majestic profile.

Locals passed him daily on the road,

as part of the mountain skyline.

he was on our drivers’ licenses as a

token of New Hampshire pride.

We will always remember

the old man of the mountain,

who watched over us, until the day

he fell.
