                                         MT WASHINGTON  

 

 The MS Mount Washington is the flagship vessel of the Winnipesaukee Flagship Corporation. Its home port is on Lake Winnipesaukee in Laconia, New Hampshire, in the United States. 

 

The history of the MS Mount Washington dates back to 1872 when the original paddle steamer Mount Washington was launched from Alton Bay.

 

She was built by the Boston and Maine Railroad Company with the intent of transporting cargo and passengers around the lake

 

The "Old Mount" graced Winnipesaukee for a total of 67 years before being destroyed on December 23, 1939, by fire. 

 

New Mount Washington made her maiden voyage on August 15, 1940.

 

Two years after her launch, the new Mount's engines were removed for use in a navy vessel during World War II.

 

The ship was a success in the post-war tourist boom although she became a money-maker in the 1980s under the ownership of Scott Brackett.
