The Old Man of the Mountain

Discovered by the first indian that looked up, The Old Man was a fixture for the town and the  notch of Franconia New Hampshire. The logo is used by the state of New Hampshire, and in many other settings.

Despite efforts in the 1960's to tie the boulders together with a series of turnbuckles connecting the rocks to the cliff top, on a dark and foggy night, in the predawn hours of May 7th 2003, the Old Man quietly tumbled into history.

This website features the photography of Austin Macaulay, and details his efforts, along with many others, to preserve The Great Stone Face by installing a series of turnbuckles and mending the huge cracks with epoxy sealer. 

Profile and preservation mages are presented in slideshow form, and high quality Giclée Prints are available for purchase.

Enjoy your visit!
