The Van Bremmer site was built under a cooperative agreement with the Long-Bell Lumber Company and the US Forest Service to detect fires causes by rail hauling of lumber on private forest lands.
The lookout was built in 1934, a USFS R1 cabin atop a 20 foot enclosed timber tower.
The lookout was staffed from 1934 to 1956. The lumber company switched to trucks for log hauling decreasing the number of fires from their activity.
The lookout was eventually vandalized and removed by 1970.
