Mt. Washington Auto Road Celebrating 150 Years

Before the telephone, the light bulb and the camera – when there were only 34 states – people were traversing some of the most treacherous weather in the nation to reach the top of the Northeast’s highest peak via the oldest man-made tourist attraction in America – the Mt.

Washington’ bumper sticker and those classic family photos.
