The first lookout on this site was a 60' wooden tower and cabin built in the 1920s. In 1934, that was replaced with an 83' treated timber tower with a 7'x7' L-6 cab and a 14'X14' L-4 cabin living quarters. The abandoned old cabin with attached garage was then used for storage. The lookout was abandoned in 1964 and is now gone.
