This is not part of a castle but an old water tower located on the top of the Third Hill, also known as Forbes Hill, located in the Wollaston section. The water tower was built around 1900 and held 330,000 gallons of water in addition to a reservoir that held up to five million gallons of water. Quincy presently receives it's excellent drinking water from Quabbin Reservoir. During World War II, the Civil Air Patrol used the tower as an observation deck. This site is now used as a recreational area for soccer, dog walking, and other activities. If you enlarge the picture you will see that the tower now supports an array of antennas . . .

This site is listed on the National Register of Historic places. It's a great place to catch a beautiful sunset.
