At least $250,000 has been raised for a memorial to New Hampshire's fallen Old Man of the Mountain.
The money has come from the sale of paver stones engraved with donors' messages at a plaza built in Franconia Notch. Nearly 600 granite paver stones have been laid in the plaza since last year, when it was dedicated. Paver stones can still be purchased.
