To many, New Hampshire conjures the image of authentic New England communities and a rural history going back hundreds of years. This is true of many new Hampshire towns.

However, New Hampshire heritage also spans the driving progress of industrial mills in Manchester, an overwhelming spirit of community involvement and political participation and numerous other contributions to the culture and history of this unique place.  New Hampshire's historical institutions give visitors the opportunity to see the state from the vantage point of the historian or through the eyes of a historical figure. 

Until it fell in 2003, the Old Man of the Mountain watched over New Hampshire.  The Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund has started construction on a new monument being erected by Profile Lake. To learn more and to donate to the project, click here.
