The Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund With the collapse of the Old Man of the Mountain on May 3, 2003, New Hampshire lost a beloved icon. Since that day, friends of the Old Man from throughout the Granite State and beyond have continued to celebrate the strength and spirit of the Profile. The Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund, with the support of hundreds of people, has created the Profiler Plaza in Franconia Notch as a lasting monument to honor the Old Man. The Plaza will eventually be turned over to the New Hampshire Division of Parks.

The Old Man of the Mountain Legacy Fund is helping create new and unique experiences for first time and returning visitors, whether they seek strenuous activity, leisurely and reflective pursuits or family outings.

The Fund's primary focus is the construction of a large-scale monument that will provide an exciting new visitor attraction and honor the state's much-loved emblem. The first phase of the monument was dedicated in June 2011 and includes seven steel "profilers" that recreate the visage of the Old Man looking over Franconia Notch. The profilers are part of the Old Man of the Mountain Profile Plaza, which comprises more than 1,000 paver stones imparting memories of many people who love the Old Man. The Legacy Fund continues to work on plans and fundraising for the next phase of the Old Man memorial.
