Presidential Range,

group of the White Mts., N N.H., so called from the names of its peaks. Mt. Washington (6,288 ft/1,917 m) is the highest peak in New Hampshire; a meteorological station is at the summit. A year-round resort center, it was developed for tourists in the mid-1800s. Other peaks include Mt. Adams (5,798 ft/1,767 m), Mt. Jefferson (5,715 ft/1,742 m), Mt. Clay (5,532 ft/1,686 m), Mt. Monroe (5,385 ft/1,641 m), and Mt. Madison (5,363 ft/1,635 m). Mt. Clay was renamed Mt. Reagan by the New Hampshire legislature in 2003, but in 2010 the U.S. Board on Geographic Names voted against changing the official name of Mt. Clay.
