Abstract New Hampshire's Old Man of the Mountain illustrates the concept of attraction residuality, wherein a destroyed iconic tourist site is reinvented as a residual attraction through a process of selected ex situ reconstruction and memorialisation. Various mechanical and social reproduction strategies characterise the latter component, including the construction of an off-site full-scale replica and the declaration of a commemoration day and annual awards. Applied more broadly into a specialised disaster planning framework, attraction residuality options can be expanded to include redefinition of the unaltered nucleus and in situ reconstruction of the original icon.
