NH's 'Old Man' memorial won't expand

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Nearly 10 years after New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain crumbled, so, too, have plans to add to the memorial plaza dedicated to its memory.

The famed rock outcropping hung 1,200 feet above Profile Lake in Franconia Notch State Park before falling on May 3, 2003. A group has been trying to raise money for a $5 million, multi-phase memorial, but board member Dick Hamilton said Wednesday that no further work will be done because donations dried up.

The first phase, completed in 2011, includes a series of steel rods pointing toward the cliff that allow viewers to see an outline of the profile. The now abandoned plan also called for five granite monoliths and a gateway honoring those who worked for decades to keep the profile in place.
