The Franconia Range is a mountain range located in the White Mountains of the U.S. state of New Hampshire. It is the second-highest range of peaks (after the Presidential Range) in the White Mountains. Franconia Ridge is a prominent ridge which forms the backbone of the range, stringing together all of its major summits.
Pointers to a more precise definition of Franconia's boundaries include: the territories covered by the former Duchy of Franconia and former Franconian Circle, the range of the East Franconian dialect group, the common culture and history of the region and the use of the Franconian Rake on coats of arms, flags and seals.
Unfortunately, there seems to be no ultimate authority--the USGS Board of Geographic Names website doesn't seem to recognize the existence of the Franconia Range at all, and though they do have a record for Mt. Garfield, they don't seem to have an opinion as to what range it belongs to. 18.104.22.168 19:09, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
