These views are historical, and while some still exist, other views are long gone. NH’s state emblem, the Old Man of the Mountains, collapsed on May 3, 2003. The original 24-passenger 1938 Cannon Mountain Tramway (#3) was replaced with a new 70-passenger tram in 1980. Cranmore replaced its 1938 Skimobile lift (#7) with a high speed quad chairlift in 1989.
Still in operation are the Jackson (Honeymoon) covered bridge; the Whaleback Light (#6); the Mount Washington Cog Railway (#8); the M/S Mount Washington cruise ship (#5) on Lake Winnipesaukee; and the Mount Washington Auto Road (#9). And NH’s beautiful natural landscapes – the Flume Gorge (#1), The Great Gulf (#4), and Mt. Chocorua (#10) – all endure.
