About The Blue Hill Observatory
Blue Hill Meteorological
Observatory, located at the top of a scenic mountain range south of Boston, is a
unique American institution. Founded in 1885 by Abbott Lawrence Rotch as a
private scientific center for the study and measurement of the atmosphere, it
was the site of many pioneering weather experiments and discoveries. The earliest
kite soundings of the atmosphere in North America in the 1890s and the
development of the radiosonde in the 1930s occurred at this historic site.
Today, the Observatory is a National Historic Landmark and remains committed
to continuing its extensive, uninterrupted climate record with traditional
methods and instruments. The recently established Science Center expands
this mission by enhancing public understanding of atmospheric science.
We are grateful for the generous support of members, friends, and corporations who make it possible to continue our benchmark climate observations and educational outreach programs. Please contact Charles Orloff by phone: (508) 776-1879 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make a donation to the Observatory.
