John Wingate Weeks Historic Site's Mt. Prospect estate was built at the direction of John Wingate Weeks, leading conservationist, U.S. congressman, U.S. senator, and Secretary of War under Presidents Harding and Coolidge. The 420-acre Mt. Prospect estate was given to the state of New Hampshire in 1941 by John Weeks' children, Katherine Weeks Davidge and Sinclair Weeks. Set at the very top of Mt. Prospect in Lancaster, New Hampshire, the house and grounds provide a 360-degree panorama of mountain splendor, including the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Kilkenny Range, the Percy Peaks, and the upper Connecticut River Valley.

Drive or hike up the narrow paved road to the top of Prospect Mountain to visit Weeks State Park (road closed in winter ). Enjoy 360 deg views from the top of the stone fire tower. Take narrated tour of the house built by Weeks for a small fee. Top floor is totally open with picture window views of the surroundings. Very peaceful place to have picknic or hike around.

Great area for hiking and outdoor events. There are really easy trails that are great for family outings, and some slightly more challenging ones if you want to get some exercise outside for a few hours. The top has a nice lodge that is a museum, and a fire tower you can climb to get a good view of the surrounding area.
