Carroll in Coos County, New Hampshire — The American Northeast (New England)
Mount Washington Hotel / Bretton Woods Monetary Conference
This site in the town of Carroll, named "Bretton Woods" in 1903 to recall the original land grant of 1772, was chosen in July 1944 as the location of one of the most important meetings of the 20th century. Convened by the allied nations before the end of WWII and attended by representatives of 44 countries, the Bretton Woods Conference established regulations for the international monetary system following the war. The conference created the International Monetary Fund and the future World Bank, and linked the exchange rate of world currencies to the value of gold.
