Demolition Complete; Extreme Mount Washington Takes Shape

2013-10-29 10:37:59.000 – Will Broussard,  Outreach Coordinator


When I last updated you on the progress of Extreme Mount Washington, the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Construction Crew had just arrived and completed their first week of demolition on the site of the former Mount Washington Observatory Summit Museum. The space is now transformed and bears little resemblance to its former self.

Outside, winter is tightening its grip on the higher summits of Northern New England, and the Observatory and AMC staff have begun utilizing chains to assist their travels up and down the Mount Washington Auto Road. Inside the Sherman Adams Building however, staff are kept warm and dry as new storage spaces and exhibit partition walls are completed, drywall is installed and taped, ceiling finishes are applied, and electrical switch locations are identified and installed. There will be 3 electricians joining the AMC staff this week to assist in the installation of electrical circuit conduits. Images of the process may be viewed on our Renovation Photos page. The skeleton of Extreme Mount Washington is taking shape.

As work begins we still have just over $40,000 left to raise on the project’s $825,000 budget. Help us bring this important project to completion by making a tax-deductible donation of any amount on
