House passes bill honoring Ray Burton
The House Wednesday approved Senate Bill 357 which names the scenic overlook on Route 302 in the village of Bretton Woods, across from the entrance to the Mount Washington Hotel, and the visitors’ center after Burton.
The scenic overlook was dedicated to Burton at a ceremony attended by most of the state’s political hierarchy several weeks before he died.
“Ray Burton had the pulse of the North Country,” Rep. Brad Bailey, R-Monroe, said Wednesday. “There was no one like him.”
The developer of the new welcome center in Hooksett, the Common Man’s Alex Ray, asked to name the northbound center after Burton.
The bill goes to Gov. Maggie Hassan for her signature.
