Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Fort Standish with additional information or photos.

The ruins of Massachusetts Ft. Standish, used through World War II, once boasting sixty structures, now contain mostly the fort’s gun batteries (which had a range of nine miles) and a remaining staircase leading up to the sky. The path along the east side of the island leads to this “stairway to nowhere.”
