Mount Washington, New Hampshire is known as the “Home of the
World’s Worst Weather.” At 6,288 feet, the mountain is an infamous place of extremes that has been captivating visitors for hundreds of years.
While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few
are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously staffed scientific outpost on this remote peak since 1932, providing the Observatory many remarkable stories and an intimate knowledge of the mountain.
Learn all about these tales from Will Broussard, the Observatory’s Education Coordinator, where he coordinates and leads programs on Mt. Washington’s natural, cultural, and scientific history.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Milford Town Library, this event is
free and open to the public.
