AAA Editor Notes
Sherman Adams Summit Building, atop Mount Washington, offers a 360-degree view of the northern Presidential Range. Visitors can see the restored 1853 Tip Top House, one of the oldest mountaintop buildings in the country and the first hotel on Mount Washington. The summit building honors Sherman Adams, a former governor of New Hampshire and one of the state's best-known political, civic and business leaders. An information desk, a glass-enclosed viewing area and a weather museum are in the building.
The building is accessible via hiking trails, the Mount Washington Auto Road or the Cog Railway.
