Old Man of the Mountains

The Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol

The story of the Old Man of the Mountain is a story of NH itself, reflecting our history, arts, literature, geography, philosophy and even public policy. As the multi-faceted story of this icon enfolds, the audience will be challenged to think about the different and evolving ways that this image has touched the public imagination over its 200 year history. This presentation by Maggie Stier will include images of paintings, literary passages, souvenirs, and film clips of interviews with those closest to the Old Man, and conclude with a discussion of current efforts to memorialize the state symbol.
On September 27, 2012 the Historical Society will co host this event with the Hooksett Public Library as part of our Society monthly meetings. This event is a NH HUmanities Council Program
