The old man of the Mountain

I would like  to thank the Griffin Free Library for co-sponsoring this presentation and all in attendance on Tuesday May 19 2015. On Tuesday, May 19, 2015 the Auburn Historical Association and The Griffin Free Public Library organized a presentation of the Old Man of The Mountain.  There were approximately 50 people in attendance eager to learn more about the state of New Hampshire’s emblem. Interesting facts were discussed about Franconia Notch and the legacy of the great stone face. The presentation was about one of the best known rock formations in the country formed about 14,000 years ago, “The Old Man of the Mountain.” His face once measured about 40 feet high and 25 feet wide.   The Old Man was discovered in 1805 by surveyors working on the first road through Franconia Notch.  The Franconia North Parkway is one of the most spectacular mountain passes between the Kinsman and Franconia mountain ranges. Cannon Mountain and the Flume Gorge are at the center of Franconia Notch where the Old Man once stood. The Old Man’s fame began mostly because of statesmen Daniel Webster and Nathanial Hawthorne’s writings. Through its many years of existence, this iconic rock profile had been secured numerous times in the attempt to prevent the rock profile from falling.  The first attempt to secure the Old Man was in 1916 when the owners of The Profile House hired Edward Geddes to work on the forehead of the large stone. Geddes spent six days in frigid conditions installing turnbuckles and rods. Fiberglass was also used to fill in the cracks on the heard of the rock formation. For the last of the many years that the Old Man stood, the caretakers were Niels, Mike, Deb and David Nielsen. On May 3, 2003, shrouded in fog, the Old Man of The Mountain fell sometime between midnight and 2 a.m. On June 12, 2011, a newly constructed Old Man Profiler Plaza and monument was dedicated in memory of the Old Man of the Mountain.
