I have no idea what this building was used for. It's right on the strip and obviously, old and uncared for. I felt the need to snap a picture of the ornate window and then one of the, well....not so ornate one! We were nosy and peeked into one of the ground level windows. Looks like it might have been used for some aspect of the park services at some point.

I put this under adventure travel because romping around this 1775 Revolutionary War fort can be an adventure. The stairs are crumbling and coyotes lurk after dark, but from the top of the water tower (stairs in fine condition, open on summer weekends, call for other times in the year) it's a marvelous view of Boston Light, Graves Light and the North Shore, Quincy and Hingham harbors, the Blue Hills and the Boston skyline.
There's also a museum in the Officers' Quarters building. The exhibits are being built up gradually.
