Join the Plymouth Historical Society in welcoming Maggie Stier to Pease Public Library on Tuesday, March 13th as she discusses the “Old Man of the Mountain: Substance and Symbol.”
The story of the Old Man of the Mountain is a story of New Hampshire itself, reflecting our history, arts, literature, As the multi-faceted story of this icon unfolds, the audience will be challenged to think about the different and evolving ways that this image has touched the public imagination over its 200 year history. The presentation will include images of paintings, literary passages, souvenirs, and film clips of interviews with those closest to the Old Man, and conclude with a discussion of current efforts to memorialize the state symbol.
This presentation is made possible through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council and is part of their Humanities to Go! program.
