122. Mount Washington Hotel
located on the north side of US302 at the
entrance to the hotel at Bretton Woods, Carroll, NH


We weren't smart enough to look on the back of this sign, so we had to go back to photograph the 'Bretton Woods Monetary Conference' side. "The Mount Washington Hotel, the large building to the east, is the culminating achievement of the creators of the Bretton Woods area. Conceived by Mr. Joseph Stickney, a wealthy railroad magnate, it was built in 1902 in a grand manner to attract the fashionable and the rich. A magnificent structure in a spectacular setting, the Mount Washington Hotel has been host to presidents, royalty, and scores of celebrities. In its heyday as many as fifty-seven trains a day brought carloads of people, great and humble, to this resort rivaling Newport, Saratoga, and Bar Harbor."
