Additional Details:
Elephant's head guards the upper gateway of the Crawford Notch, and immediately beyond is the idyllic little plateau which holds the Crawford House. About 1850, Thomas Crawford started to build a hotel on the site of the present Crawford House, but was obliged to sell out to a company, which completed the house. In April, 1859, the hotel was burned, and was rebuilt the same year on a somewhat larger scale. Just at the door of the famous hostelry lies a dainty gem of a lake which is the true source of the Saco River.
