Standpipe Tour

The standpipe was built in 1897 and is designated as a National Historic Landmark by the Maine Historic Preservation Commission.  It is not handicap accessible; the promenade deck is reached via a 100-step enclosed staircase.

Travel on Thomas Hill Road to the standpipe will be one-way from Highland Avenue; parking is limited in the immediate area of the standpipe

A permanent plaque, details the construction and history of the 119-year-old standpipe. The stone on which the plaque is mounted was moved from the Floods Pond watershed by District crews.
