Tour of History

2013-09-03 18:31:57.000 – Pratik Patel,  Summit Intern


For those of you that love history, today marks the 230th anniversary of the Treaty of Paris. This treaty marked the end of the American Revolutionary War between Great Britain and the United States of America. In addition, it granted the United States of America freedom from England under the rule of King George III. John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and John Jay signed the treaty in Paris, France along with the opposing parties.

In other news, the weather this evening might be filled with some isolated showers, so dress accordingly. As of right now, the Summit is in a state of Fog with very low visibility. Tonight, there is a chance of some isolated thunderstorms and heavy rain. Also, as Rebecca has mentioned, the NH State Park, The Cog, and the Mt. Washington Auto Road are operating under their fall hours, so please plan accordingly.
