Reaching more than a mile in the sky and acting as the crown of the Presidential Range, Mount Washington and the Mt. Washington Auto Road have been luring and challenging adventure seekers on foot, on bicycles, or in race cars for over 150 years. The Mt. Washington Auto Road was opened to the public in 1861 and has remained in continuous operation ever since—making this the nation's first man-made attraction. Located in the heart of New Hampshire's White Mountains, the Mt. Washington Auto Road has witnessed the evolution of transportation from mountain wagons drawn by six-horse teams to the modern cars of today. Mt. Washington Auto Road documents the history of this eight-mile path to the summit of the Northeast's highest peak.
