Interesting fact about the Mount Washington Auto Road
« on: August 07, 2017, 08:22:32 AM »
"Opened in 1861, the Mount Washington Carriage Road was the first man-made tourist attraction in America. Earlier that year Abraham Lincoln had taken office and in spite of his impassioned inaugural address, the Civil War had begun."
