The Eastern Slope Inn is a historic hotel in North Conway. Built in 1926, it is one of the community's most prominent examples of large-scale Colonial Revival architecture, and is historically important as a major element in the popularization of downhill skiing in the area. The inn was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
North Conway's rugged terrain became popular in the 19th century with artists. Their paintings were known collectively as White Mountain art, which in turn attracted tourists to the area, particularly after the Portsmouth, Great Falls & Conway Railroad extended service in 1872 to North Conway. In 1932, "snow trains" began carrying enthusiasts to "the birthplace of American skiing," as North Conway is known. There is plenty to do for the adventurist, and shoppers too. North Conway is well known for it's shops up and down main street. All visitors to this lovely area will find plenty activities, dining and accommodations.
