A standard AWS post structure with a ground cabin and cupola were constructed circa 1943.
The US Forest Service built, provisioned and staffed the post. The US Army reimbursed the US Forest Service for all costs. Operators were expected to report all aircraft activities and report all fires and smokes to USFS dispatch. Aircraft information was then relayed to the Army.
The date of removal and the exact location of the post is unknown.
