High atop Captain’s Hill, 200 feet above sea level, stands the Myles Standish Monument. This 116-foot granite shaft is crowned by a 14-foot statue of Captain Myles Standish, military leader of Plymouth Colony. On Sunday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Myles Standish Monument will be open for visitors to climb and explore. Take the 125 step journey to the top and, if it’s a clear day, you can enjoy a panoramic scenic vista of the Cape and Southeastern Massachusetts, as well as a stunning view of peak foliage. For all ages. Rain or shine. Myles Standish Monument State Reservation is located off of Crescent Street in Duxbury. For more information, call Amy at 508-272-9376.
