A pole platform tower and log cabin built in the 1920s were replaced by a 20' pole L-4 tower in 1932. This in turn was replaced by a 20' treated timber R-6 flat tower in 1964 built by Driggs Construction of Anaconda, MT. The tower has been removed but the log cabin remains.

During the summers of 1961-64, Jerry Churchwell served as a lookout at this tower.
