We are back this year with another opportunity to climb to the top of the Weston Observatory!  Located behind Derryfield Park, Weston Observatory was built in 1896 in honor of James Adams Weston, a former Mayor of Manchester and Governor of New Hampshire.  The tower stands 66 feet tall, giving an exquisite view of Manchester and the surrounding areas from its observation deck.  Normally closed to the public, the Weston Observatory will be open for just one weekend in October during foliage season.  Picnic tables will be available, so bring a lunch and come enjoy the beautiful fall foliage while experiencing one of Manchester's best kept secrets! Please note that the Observatory is not accessible for people in wheelchairs or who have walking disabilities.
