The Northfield Historical Society Hosting Program on Old Man of the Mountain (255) Announces Grant Award

NORTHFIELD — The Northfield Historical Society has received a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council to present "The Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol ". The program will be presented on Monday, June 16 at 7 p.m. at the Northfield Town Hall, 21 Summer Street, Northfield.

Speaker Maggie Stier is the statewide field service representative for the NH Preservation Alliance.
Since 2005 she has been affiliated with the Old man of the Mountain Legacy Fund, playing a key role in the development of the new Profile monument and plaza in Franconia Notch, and creating educational programs and events to build greater awareness of the resources of this unique area. She is co-author of "Into the Mountains: Stories of New England's Most Celebrated Peaks", and has written and lectured on a variety of topics related to cultural history and historic preservation. Ms. Stier is adjunct faculty at Plymouth State University and serves on the NH State Parks Advisory Council.

The Old Man of the Mountains, in Franconia Notch, has sparked observers' imaginations. The program details threats to the Old Man that led to its protection as a State Park, and to the construction of the Franconia Notch Parkway. Ms. Stier presents an analysis of what caused the Old Man to fall in 2003, summarizes private efforts to create a memorial, and leads a discussion of how this unique natural phenomenon may be remembered by future generations.
