The New Hampshire state government has a Concord Coach on unusual exhibit, high in the White Mountains. This vehicle, an Abbot-Downing product of 1874, was obtained from a Vermont source in 1933 by the Society for the Preservation of New Hampshire Forests and placed on display at the Flume, in Franconia Notch, which it then operated, and it has remained there ever since under state custody. This coach was labeled "Plymouth-Franconia Mountains." In 1963, Mrs. Rachel Adams of Lincoln, wife of former Governor and Presidential Assistant Sherman Adams, sponsored renovations of the old vehicle, for use in the 1964 bicentennial celebration of the lumbering town of Lincoln. The Division of Parks has recently completed a new building in which this coach is now housed.
