The view from Halibut Point stretches from Crane Beach in Ipswich to Mount Agamenticus in Maine and the Isles of Shoals off the New Hampshire coast. The rocky shore is populated by various tidal pool organisms. In the Visitor Center, one can view exhibits on the park’s natural and cultural history and then climb the Center’s 60-foot tall World War II fire-control tower for a more panoramic view. The reservation is the site of Babson Farm Quarry, now filled with water, which was active until the early 1900s. Today, the park is managed by the Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Trustees of Reservations.
