North Conway is the largest and most densely populated village in the town of Conway, New Hampshire. It is the economic and cultural center of the White Mountains and has distinguished itself in the region with its tourist attractions, shopping outlets, sporting and recreational activities, and unique local restaurants. Chartered in 1765, North Conway has long been a playground of the rich and famous and has hosted politicians, sports legends, movie and television stars, and even European royalty. During the 19th century, it became a major center for White Mountain art. Many of the famous views enshrined in the canon of American art can still be enjoyed today, while others have been obscured by forests that have returned after being cleared for farming. Beginning in the 1930s with the founding of the Eastern Slope Ski Club, the unique Skimoble, and the famous ski school at Cranmore Mountain led by Hannes Schneider, North Conway became a winter paradise.
