Lynn Woods Stone Tower

Stone Tower is set on the top of Burrill Hill in Lynn Woods, the highest point in Lynn. It was constructed in 1936 for fire observation and originally was built with a wooden roof structure to provide shelter for crews.

Grand Army of the Republic Museum

The Grand Army of the Republic Building was erected in 1885 with funds raised by local Civil War veterans for what was the largest G.A.R. post in the country. Its crowning glory is the enormous 56' x 46' main hall on the third floor, which retains the original furnishings and has walls filled with photos of Civil War veterans.

Dungeon Rock

Dungeon Rock is a 135-foot-deep cave once believed to hold a treasure and its unfortunate pirate. Late in the summer of 1658, a sinister ship appeared in Lynn Harbor. It was believed that one pirate took a stolen treasure with him as he escaped deep into the woods, arriving at a natural cave in what is now Lynn Woods.

High Rock Tower

Rising to a height of 170 feet, High Rock Tower is less than three quarters of a mile from the ocean and commands unobstructed views of Boston, Nahant, and Swampscott.

Goldfish Pond

The first European arrivals to Lynn chose the beautiful Goldfish Pond area as their settlement in Lynn in 1629. The pond was then described as a muddy swamp and was used as a watering hole for cattle and pigs. In the 1840’s, it was stated that young boys in the Lewis Street area had visited a summer estate in Swampscott where the owner had left behind goldfish.
