The Old Man Memorial (Old Man of the Mountain Profile Plaza & Historic Site) is located at Exit 34B from I-93 (Aerial Tramway Exit). Turn towards the Aerial Tramway and take the first left at the large wooden sign for Old Man of the Mountain. Follow that road to the parking lot. Walk around the Old Man Museum and Gift Shop building (with seasonal restroom facilities) to the right and follow the path down to Profile Lake. There you will find the Profile Plaza.
The Old Man of the Mountain Profile Plaza features a monument designed by Ron Magers and Shelly Bradbury, which provides an exciting new visitor attraction and honors the state’s much-loved emblem.
The Plaza includes seven steel “profilers” that recreate the visage of the Old Man looking over Franconia Notch.
The Plaza also includes hundreds of paver stones purchased by friends of the Old Man from throughout the Granite State and far beyond and engraved with personal messages.
