The Mount Washington Hotel is located in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, which is part of a land grant made in 1772 by Royal Governor John Wentworth. The area was named after Bretton Hall, Wentworth's ancestral home in Yorkshire, England.

The superstructure of the hotel boasted a steel network, uncommon in its day. The hotel was built by New Hampshire native Joseph Stickney, who made his fortune in coal mining and the Pennsylvania Railroad. He spared no expense in building the imposing hotel. The latest design and construction methods were used. Innovative and complicated heating and plumbing systems were installed. To this day, the Mount Washington Hotel has its own private telephone system and Post Office.
