“The Old Man: His Life and Legacy.”

November 8, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for the Upper Pemigewasset Historical Society’s 2023 Annual Meeting on Wednesday, November 8th at 6:00 PM. This event is open to the public, and we have a captivating evening planned for you! We’ll begin with our business agenda before delving into an enlightening presentation by Inez McDermott, in collaboration with the New Hampshire Humanities Council. Inez, a seasoned educator and curator with a profound passion for art history and New Hampshire’s rich heritage, will lead us through “The Old Man: His Life and Legacy.” This program explores the iconic Old Man of the Mountain, whose fall in 2003 left a profound impact on both local and international communities. We’ll delve into the symbolism and historical significance of the Profile, recounting tales of courageous mountaineers, ingenious engineers, and even schoolchildren who contributed to preserving this natural wonder. We invite you to share your own encounters with this beloved symbol, as we uncover the enduring allure and importance of these granite ledges in the hearts of many. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to connect with history and fellow enthusiasts! Light refreshments will be served.
