BRETTON WOODS, NEW HAMPSHIRE PROPERTY EST. 1902 • NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARK In 1902, local industrialist Joseph Stickney built The Mount Washington Hotel, a white Spanish Renaissance hotel with a distinctive red roof and a grand colonnaded veranda. An immediate success among the privileged class, it was the most luxurious hotel of its day. More than 250 master craftsmen, skilled in masonry and woodworking, were brought over from Italy during the two-year construction. Today, this four-diamond resort has recently completed a $90 million renovation and offers opulent accommodations, award-winning dining, and countless activities such as a full-service spa, year-round canopy tour, the state’s largest ski area, and an 18-hole, Donald Ross-designed golf course, all amid breathtaking natural scenery. In 1944, plans for the World Bank and International Monetary Fund were drawn up in the hotel’s Gold Room, which is preserved as a museum room today with original furniture and memorabilia from the Bretton Woods Monetary Conference.
