The weather looks perfect on Wednesday to climb the 100 steps to the standpipe’s circular observation deck, which is open to the public only a few times each year.

Don't miss this chance to get a spectacular view from 3 to 6pm!

Constructed in 1897, the standpipe holds 1.75 million gallons of water and rises 110 feet from Thomas Hill, named after Bangor brothers Charles and James Hill, they owned the land upon which the standpipe stands.
