On a clear day, you can see forever, at least, after you climb to the top of the Fort Hill Tower in Roxbury

Panoramic view from the top of the Fort Hill Tower

Seems that every so often, the Fort Hill Tower, a.k.a. the Cochituate Standpipe, in Roxbury is opened for a public tour. Brooks Payne climbed to the top yesterday and took in the views - and listened to Byron Rushing and other members of the Roxbury Historical Society talk about the tower's history, which dates to its construction in 1869.

The kids at St. Joseph's where I attended grade school used to call it "The Witches Tower". No one knew what it was for.
