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.”
