More than a Mountain
Mount Monadnock in southwest New Hampshire is the most climbed mountain in North America and the second most climbed mountain in the world. More than 60 poems have been written about it, dozens of paintings of it are in museums around the world and 100,000 people hike it every year. It's a special and unique place and this site is dedicated to those who climb it, write about it, paint it or just love it.
The mountain has a long and interesting history that dates back to the 17th century. Many dedicated "Monadnophiles" have spent thousands of hours and thousands of dollars protecting it from development.
This site will collect information on the history of the mountain, the poems that were written about it, the music that was composed about it, the paintings of it and speculations about its future. It's also the official web page of the book Monadnock: More than a Mountain by Craig Brandon.
Come in and explore all we have to offer and post your comments on the Monadnock Blog.
