Replacement in sight for New Hampshire's crumbled symbol
LINCOLN, N.H. -- Four years after the demise of the Old Man of the Mountain, another of New Hampshire's rocky profiles is getting a little more attention.
At about 98 feet long, the Indian Head on the side of Mount Pemigewassett [visible off Exit 33 on I-93] is nearly 60 feet longer than the Old Man of the Mountain was, but it never attracted much attention in part because the Old Man profile was more distinct and easily visible from the highway.
Stew Weldon of the Indian Head Resort told the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper that interest in the Indian Head has surged since the Old Man crumbled.
